I've been hanging around reading a lot, 90 gallon 4 foot x 24 inch FW
has been up and running for 13 years. Had a great time with South American Cichlids, now that the last has passed on, wanted to go to angels with lightly planted low tech plants.
Now have 2X 48 inch 32 watt 6500K bulbs for light.
Looked all over to get the best light, decided on catalina 3 X 54 watts two circuits. Just got it, now learning, Best light, but may instantly put me into high tech mode. So I was running about 1000 watts a day, 64 watts X 15 hours. Plants slowly melted after about a month, or just are hanging on.
If I run 1 32 watt with just one of the 3 54 watts will that give me enough light and keep me without algae blooms. If I need more light could I just add a couple hours in afternoon of other 2 54 to give a pulse...or will that fry everything.
