So, I went out last night and bought a better light for my aquarium. It had 2 plain white fluorescent tubes on it that were very faint to lighting up the tank. So I went to a pet store that is 60 miles away from my house because they sent me a 30% off coupon, and bought the AquaticLife T5 HO
72". It has three settings. The first 420/460, then 700 and finally LED
. The fixture has a control panel built in that I can set all the lights to operate automatically, but the book doesn't say how long it recommends each type of light to run throughout the day. The LED
one I have figured out, its for night time use. Does anyone else have this light, and can you please give me a rough idea how long each day to let them run? I read 12 hours of lighting per day, but I don't know that I should have all 3 lights on the same time for 12 consecutive hours. Thanks in advance!
