Yesterday was my birthday and Dear Husband finally took my hints and got me new lighting for my 55 heavily planted overgrown jungle. This is an upgrade from 2 48" shoplights, or 4x40w. However, what I requested was 4x55w, and he got me 4x65w. This is the 48" Coralife FW
Aqualight with 4 integrated cooling fans and 4 65w 6700K PC
I am thrilled to have fancy lights but is a little more than I had planned! I am going to have to really keep an eye on my nutrient dosing and CO2
, and watch out for algae. I finally got a horrible algae outbreak under control, so I have some trepidation about increasing my wattage by so much.
Wish me luck! (It sure does look better than the shop lights, anyway
