I am looking at some different light fixtures for my 75 gallon FOWLR
Tank. I am really kind of lost as to what is the best time of lighting. I am a little reluctant to go with MH
lights, because of heat (I have a canopy on the tank).
Can anyone give me any recommendations on the following fixtures:
