This tank has no plants in it. I'm about to redo it with a lot of rockwork to simulate the cichlids natural habitat more closely. The tank used to be SW
, but was changed over before I started taking care of it. I wasn't aware that the actinics would promote algae growth in a FW
tank. Has anyone else had any experience with this? I wonder if the standard "blue" bulbs would be better than "true actinics" for this application. I'm thinking you can get the 50/50 bulbs, although I'll have to check on it, with either 7100k blue or true actinic. Any thoughts?
