I totally posted to the wrong forum here. But hey, while I'm here...I have some questions!!!
I have basically forgotten 90% of everything in the last 10 years.
I am starting over with a 10 gallon tank and went to my (usually fantastic) LFS
.. and I know I overbought. So I'm debating now whether to keep everything, return some, or whatnot.
My current setup (which this part is done):
- 10g tank
- Fluval C2
- Fluval Substrate (I know, it's a love/hate relationship for most).
What I have left:
- Ballast with lighting... it's 2x24W T5HO .. and it's 24". So wider than the footprint of my tank
setup (I was initially thinking low light/low tech..but with the immense amount of light..i would need CO2
and would then do highly planted).
My main thing is the lighting. Is it too much? I can't hang it...so it would sit directly on the tank..but I worry it will be too much or too warm. When I was in this last, we didn't have these crazy things! LOL
