Hey guys/gals. Just a few quick questions I'd like to have answered.
Ok, I recently redid my 10 gallon tank this weekend and went on a little spending spree as well. I bought a 15 pound bag of flourite red, a hagen C02, and some weird bunched plants that i've never seen or heard of before. It kind of resembles foxtail only its has real fine "whiskers" that are real soft and looks a little different.
Anyways, I'm planning on doing a diy
hood. The bulb I have in there currently is a NO
15 watt standard bulb. The questions I have are:
1. In my hood, should I build a dual bulb or tri bulb fixture. 15 watts each, 2x 15 = 3 wpg
or 3x 15 = 4.5 wpg
. I'm planning on planting glosso for a foreground, so which would be better?
2. With the lights, some "plant" bulbs i've seen are rated at 4200 kelvin. Would one of these and say a 6500 bulb be better? or if I go with 3 bulbs, would it be better having 2 of one temp and one of another or should i get say a 4200, 5500, and 6500 degree bulbs for the plants?
What are your experiences with multiple bulbs?
