Hey I have an opportunity to get some new (used) lights. It would bring my 36g to 2.6wpg of lighting. If I leave the light that I have now, it would make it 3.6 wpg
. So my question is, will I NEED co2
injection?? Or can I get away without it at all.. and the occasional flourish excel? My plants are happy now with flourish ferts and the occassional excel and the lower light. I have an wild onion plant *meaning it is grwoing insanely* some swords, dwarf sag, java moss, anubias, cobomba, something ceylon....
I have another tank that will be brought up to a 2.2wpg if I get these lights with cabomba, lace java fern, java moss, red crypt, the something ceylon and sunset, swords, corkscrew vals, rotala, and sag. same question. Will I NEED co2
injuction, or can I get away without it.
Also, these are retro kits, used, I have a regular stock hood for the 36g and no hood at all for the 25g. How and can I use these lights? I do have pix, but for some reason cannot save them properly to my hard drive to load them up here......
Thanks for any help! I need to make an offer... They originally were set at $45 each add says:
The kits included external ballasts, bulbs, all wiring, and reflectors. Never had any problems with either kit.
-1x96w 36" Hamilton Tech. kit w/ one 6500k straight pin bulb used for only two months. The ballast has on/off switch on it and quick disconnect wire harness.
-1x55w 24" Custom Sealife kit w/ two 6500k square pin style bulbs, one used bulb and one new bulb still in box. This kit has on/off switch on wiring and can be easily mounted on hood.
