I used to have a bunch of FW
tanks, but moving and a couple kids later I found my self out of a hobby. My kids are older and I have more time now. So I'd like to start up an old love.
Here's what I have.
Start with 30 Gallon Long Tank
CPR Bak Pak
Berlin Protein Skimmer (Can't Remember Model used to be on my 100gal)
Eheim Pro Canister (Can't remember Model but has 2 compartments)
150+lbs of Base rock (used to be live)
What I would like to keep.
couple of False Perculas
With all that in mind I'd like to know what type of lighting would be appropriate. I have 4 - 36" Flourecent Strips T-12. From what I've read that would be 120watts of lighting, about 4 watts per gal
. Is that enough to keep the stuff I have happy. My math might be wrong still doing a lot of research.
I was considering replacing the Flourecent Strips with PC
strips maybe 2 96watt PC
. That would get me up to 6 watts per gal
What type of bulbs would be best for the stuff I have listed above.
Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advace.
