Just wanted some thoughts for the type of wood to use for my canopy. I know a bunch of manufactures use pine (seems boring) and some use oak (wich im told soaks moisture up like a sponge). I was thinking of using cypress or ceader (ideal in miost enviroments) any thoughts in this matter?
the tank size is 36X18 and I will be using 4 URI VHO
bulbs run by a Icecap 660. other questions are, should I mount the lights to the lid or can I just install a lip on the inside of the sides to let them rest on? each bulb is 90 watts and on a 50 gallon thats 7.2 watts a gallon. reason i chose vho
's is at 36" it makes one MH
not enough and 2 too much.
any other thoughts please post.
