  1. Wow this is a lot info to know lol, I was just googling it to see all the info , I kinda like the 6500k , it's more clearer I think. I think I would feel more secure if I buy one from the fish store more than one from home depot cuz I don't know much and I don't want something to happen lol.

    Thanks everyone :)

  2. Additionally, you don't have to buy expensive light fixtures branded for planted aquarium use. They offer style, convenience, and functionality that aquarist want but they aren't necessary. You can repurpose lights branded for other uses, just use 6500k bulbs at the appropriate wattage. Getting to know PAR is important because the watts per gallon adage doesn't take into account differing tank dimensions which greater alter light intensity. You could possibly repurpose a shop light or something and get great results.

    Ok so u mean I can buy it from like home depot?

  3. The plants are doing well , I had them in my 79 gallon tank, I'm transferring them to the 20 gallon tank Cux I want to sell my 79 g tank, I will be moving to toronto in a few months. My 79 g tank has 2 t8 bulbs but my 20 g tank don't, it came with the standard bulb, I was thinking to upgrade to a power glo or a flora glo but I'm not sure which one :-( the Val is a brand new plant that was bought yesterday , I bleached it today , it didn't actually go that well , I hope it don't die, the Anubis I had like for 5 years now and it grows slowly. I just don't want to put the plants in the 20 g and it dies cuz of the lighting.

  4. So I need a new light for my 20 gallon tank but I'm not sure which light to get , I went to the fish store and the guy showed me 2 lights the power glo or the flora glo, I currently have plants in the tank and I want to get a good Fluorescent light for my tank, any suggestions ? The plants I have in the tank are Anubis and vallisneria corkscrew plants. But I do want to get more plants.

    Hi everyone I had an accident 2days ago with my goldfish , I was cleaning the tank and he jumped and the suction ate his eye, he stop bleeding but his eye looks like there is an infection started, I will post pics before and after, I did have concerns before with my other post a few weeks ago he still has the white stuff in his gill, this is the prev post link http://www.kokosgoldfish.invisionzone.com/forum/index.php?/topic/114927-white-thing-growning-from-his-gills/. I have concerns of pop eye and still not sure of the white stuff, hes lost alot of weight too .he's still bottom sitting, gulping for air at the top. I salt with .2% and I did 6 weeks of prazi pro.

  6. How is Rupert, Sally?

    he's doing well , he's eating, he's swimming , he's bottom sitting a lot but that was happening a lot from that white thing that's growing from his gills , I'm not sure if you remember the post I post a few weeks ago.
