Ok guys. I have a eclipse system 12g that was given to me. It's been up and running for a little while. It only had my male betta Spike in it. When I got the tank the filter was missing parts so I just went out and got a aquaclear 30 for it and modified the hood to fit it.
I noticed the light in the hood didn't look to healthy. Well today after I did a water change I noticed a strange smell. My light was melting!! Luckily I caught it before I started a fire. So now I need a new light. I know this hood limits the lights that will fit. I want to go with LEDs but don't want to hurt my wallet.
I have about 17" x 4" of space that I can mount a fixture into the hood.
I was looking at the Marineland hidden led
light. Seems nice for the price. And I'm sure I could fit it into the hood. Maybe even two if the need arose. Pulse these are in stock at my local petsmart.
Sorry for the long post. My question is, will this light be enough for some low light plants? I want to add some live plants to keep my Betta happy. Plus I have a Marimo ball in there that I dint want to die.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
