I've had this particular tank for about a year now. It's a 60 gallon. I have a sand substrate and when I had plants, I used a liquid fertilizer as well as root tabs for the plants I put into the substrate. I have a 48" wave point light that uses 2 54watt HO
t5 bulbs. I also have two 18" 17 watt bulbs and a blue LED
light. I typically only turn on the wave point light when I get home from school (about 2:30) and turn them off when I go to bed (anywhere from 9:30-10:30).
