Thanks for the responses so far. I will look into those.
Hey Dallas. Yes, it is a wee little budget, but I will still be low tech and no co2
, so I am figuring I won't need a monster light.
I am hoping for some feedback on the sticky strip LED
.I know there would be light, just not sure about the quality, and I suppose you can get them in different Kelvin ratings.
Finnex, yes, that was the other lighting fixture I had been looking at and couldn't think of the name of it at the time I posted.
There is a very nice glass lid and I don't want an open top tank on that one so the sticky strips would be fine under the the glass or on top, however that works.
The tank came with 3 extra bulbs (though one was actinic) So I could even go with an older style 4 bulb florescent tube thing probably get for around $50, but the controllers and lighting features like sunrise and sunset as well as dimable for the newer power saving LEDs are nice.
Keep the ideas and experiences coming. This week I would like to decide and order it!
