They really are happy plants. As to algae, I have 3 really happy otos, lol. I leave my lights on 9 hours just to make sure I grow enough algae to keep the otos busy, but they do get a zucchini treat once a week, too.

thanks for sharing this product... I am sold on it, but I have a question...

I have a 150 gal African Cichlid tank... do I need just one of these or should I get 2 of the 48-60"?

I would say one if you are not growing plants. My tank is 24" to the gravel and is still pretty bright. If I wasn't growing plants I would probably have bought two for better coverage front to back

I'm definately NOT growing plants...esp with Africans since they dig the place up like crazy...

just not sure if one strip is enough to cover from front to back of the 150

If your budget permits you should get two.. it has the ability for you to customize the output to dim it anyways. You'll have more uniform coverage front and back.

Or you can always try one, if it's not enough you can order a second one later.
