Hello! I have an Aqueon 29 gallon bow-front fish tank and the stock light that came with the tank seems to not be working anymore, even after I installed a new tube. I'm interested in getting a new light (LED perhaps?) and would appreciate any suggestions and/or advice on where to look to find suitable lights for my particular tank. If there's a thread that someone knows that has information about lights, I would also appreciate someone tagging it here. =) Thanks!
Hi Guys, First time poster, long time reader. I love this site it has helped me save a few fish! So, I am about to move to a new place and I decided that I would like to go bare bottom in my 60 gallon and I have a few questions. I have tried to grow plants to no success in my tank with stock lighting that is only 30 watts. However I noticed recently that I am growing plenty of green algae, so I'm wondering perhaps if I added an LED system to it maybe it would help? Or just go LED all together? I was thinking about something like this. http://www.petsmart.com/supplies/lights/national-geographic-trade-deluxe-programmable-led-aquarium-light-zid36-21386/cat-36-catid-300073?var_id=36-21386 I have experience growing plants in a 10 gallon tropical tank, that is getting 2 watts/gallon, my amazon sword is growing out of the top! So I am familiar with growing in a low-tech setup, I was only intending to plant something like swords, crypts, etc. in my 60 gal. since these are goldfish we're talking about!!! My second question is how has going bare bottom worked out for some of you guys? And with potted plants what kind of pots did you use? Will normal ones from places like Lowes work? Thanks a bunch I look forward to hearing your replies!!
Hey, guys. I recently planted my 40gal with oodles of short anubias. I also bought 39W LED lighting to help my anubias grow a little better. However, whenever I turn it the LED light on, my goldfish get super stressed! Peachos bottom sits in the corner and Lorenzo will start gasping in the (meager) shade of the plants. And then they snap back to grazing mode the second I turn it off, haha. Is it just too bright to the point I have to use a different light? Or should I buy more shade producing decorations?
