Lightbulbs for planted african cichlid tank advice...
I am upgrading my lighting from two hoods of two 20 watt bulbs to two hoods of three 65 watt power compacts. What would be the best bulb setup for a planted African cichlid tank? Here are the options of bulbs:
-450 nm blue/Plant Grow (it has both)
-Plant Grow/10000K White
-450nm Blue/420nm Actinic
-450nm Bright Blue
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I was originally thinking of the 10000k white with two of the 450nm Blue/Plant grow bulbs in each hood.
My tank is 140 Gallons 60x18x30 Flatback Hex. I would love to go fully planted, but that may end up being a lot of maintenance. Right now I am having trouble installing my UV Sterlizer due to plumbing/wet dry filtration under the tank, can't imagine how I would fit the CO2 setup down there.
