I recently acquired an icecap 660 ballast wired to 4 endcaps (supporting 2 bulbs) and was wondering what you thought would be the best lighting setup for a:
- 55 gallon
plants: glosso, Aponogeton crispus, dwarf sag, java fern, dwarf hairgrass
Fish: 6 rainbowfish, 5 corys, 1 pleco
tank length: 48"
substrate: 3" of eco complete
I thought I would purchase 4 new endcaps and rewire my setup to support 4 GE 40w bulbs from HD: 5000k, 6500k, and 2 6700k.
Questions for you
Do you believe it is better for the aquarium and/or more econimical for me to go with a 2 VHO
110w 6500k setup?
Do you suggest a different setup? If you suggest a different bulb setup, please include the kelvin or maybe a link to where to purchaase it online.
Thanks to all,
