I have a question regarding lighting up a standard 55 gallon tea color amamzon themed tank and still have enough light to grow plants and enhance the color of the fish?
The stocking is as follows;
6 Julii cory, 10 Bloodfin Tetra, 10 Redeye Tetra and 6 Blue Rams cichlids.
Substrate is silica sand.
Currently has stock lighting with canopy but looking at the Coralife Aqualight T5 Series - Double Linear Strip--not the ho
Would this light take away the tea color water or just enhance it more. I DO want the tea color.
Is their a combination of bulbs that would be effective for both jobs?
The plants I want to grow are Amazon Swords, Vals, Cabomba and Wisteria.
The current stock lighting is not enough for the vals and swords and cabomba.
