Lighting question

Hi, tank is currently cycling so no rush for buying lights but would like a little advice. I am just doing a FOWLR so I know I don't need killer expensive lighting. That being said I would prefer to go with LED as a friend of mine has them and they look great.

Any recommendation for 48 inch lighting?

Maybe I can get lucky on cyber Monday!!


Thanks

S

For a FOWLR tank, it can be anything you want that fits the tank and budget. It will simply be to match what pleases you, the fish don't care.

These are what I have. You would need 2 of them. They have been great for me.
