@revchristinejday - thanks! wow that seems complicated lol Mine is either an Aqueon or Top Fin light fixture; it came with the tank but not sure of the manufacturer. It's not a Marineland though. It looks like there's just room for one light in there although maybe someone more handy than I could rig up two lights in it but with my luck I'd burn the house down.
@mfdrookie516 - Since I upgraded recently to a 29 gal
I've only used the standard light it came with. When I had the 20 gal
I tried using a T5NO dual light fixture with two floramax bulbs which were easier on my eyes but I don't think the plants liked two red bulbs without a daylight bulb. Since I couldn't tolerate the brightness of even one daylight T5 I had to return the fixture. A 10,000K bulb might be worth a try, I'll try that next thanks!
@Coursair - Thanks.
I'll probably try a 10,000k; I already have an 8,000k so a 6500k would be going backwards.
