Hey y'all! Been awhile but I had a question I couldn't find an answer to. First off want to update on the Goldies. Ru, Hiro, and ChuChu are doing fabulous! I've recently added a lot more Java fern and even split my anubias into two plants! All is going great! But my question pertains to my new betta tank I set up today (seeded from the goldfish filter media), I found a t-8 fixture for real inexpensive at Walmart and bought it. I got a GE 9265k 15w freshwater/saltwater t-8 bulb and I was wondering if it would grow my low light plants? Or if it's too much? I know t-5 are better from research I've done but I already have this t-8 bulb/ballast. Any suggestions/tips would be awesome! Thanks! (Wasn't sure if I should post here or in betta forum so I came here since it was pertaining to lights). Hope everyone is doing great in the new year! -chris
Hi Just wondering if anyone has one of these lights on a 75/90 gallon tank. I am upgrading one of my tanks to a 90 and I am just wondering if the finnex is a good one. Tank will be bare bottom with maybe anubius and/java fern plants at the most. Light is a super reasonable price.
Hi! I am just wondering if anyone has this light and if they like it? I have read some reviews on amazon. I am setting up another goldfish tank and I am going bare bottom for now. This tank will be in my bedroom so I thought having a remote would be handy Eventually I might want to add some live plants in containers and I am wondering if this works? What I don't want is a lot of algae
Hi all, After seeing all the wonderful photos of tanks and fishes on the forum, I was wondering if any of you had suggestions about lighting or backgrounds (or whatever) that would make a wider and perhaps more natural palette of colors stand out (of both the goldfish and the plants, etc). In my tank, everything just seems to have a yellow cast, which I find unappealing. I have black Tahitian moon sand, this light with white fixtures, a 29-gallon tank, and some plants that are trying their very very best. I have a small piece of Mopani driftwood that I boiled for several hours (and soaked), but I think that things were looking kind of yellowish before I put that in. Would it help to put in some kind of laminate background? If so, which colors do you think set things off better? It seems, to my eye, that a slightly bluish cast (or cooler tone, I suppose) to the light sets off things quite handsomely. Would a blue bulb in addition to the white bulb help? Or would a blue bulb hurt the plant growth? I leave in some algae on the walls for BB and for my fish to suck on, but could this be why things are just not looking like the best color? Would it help to get some supplemental colored LEDs (although I don't know if I would have room to hang them over the tank--I am not sure if there is a way to "stick them" onto the back tank wall or something)? I might try putting in carbon once I'm done treating with Prazi and salt in a week to see if that helps, but that seems like a short-term solution to me. Thank you! Also, here is a recent picture of the tank, although it looks more yellowish in real life.
