I'm sooo close to knowing everything that I need/want. The stock list seems set for the most part and I'm down to my last few things.
I'm looking up tank sizes from
and am wondering
I want a 45g tank, should I get a...
45 gallon: 36 1/4 x 12 5/8 x 23 3/4
45 gallon long: 48 1/4 x 12 3/4 x 19
I read that the more surface area the more gas exchange can take place. So then the 36" long one would be a better bet?
Once I know the final tank dimensions I can get a hood and get cracking!
Oh, another question since I'm such a pain
I keep reading posts about florescent and actinic lights and how you should run the actinic before and after the normal white florescent. For that type of set up do I need two light bars to run the two lights, then perhaps fill the tank out with a glass canopy/wood canopy?
