I am setting up a 90 gal
Malawian Cichlid tank. My main concern is lighting.
This is what George from www.malawicichlid.com
"As for the lighting, I would just add a full length white and a full length actinic fluorescent tubes, placed as close to each other as possible."
I would love to follow his advice but I have questions. I got an electronic balast that can run two bulbs? It is recomended for use with (2) F40T12.
(1)What does that mean?
(2)Do I need HO
(3)Are 2 NO
bulbs going to put out enough light?
(4)How long is full length -- 4 feet?
(5)Can my balast run 2 T5 bulbs instead of T12s.
I know that I could just bug George again but he is only one person. I want input from many. I have been reading your post for awhile now and I respect your advice.
