RE: [APD] Lighting a nano with a 5300K halogen

No, it's *under* the aquarium. Strategically placed halogen lights under the
aquarium can heat the substrate and create convection currents that help
carry nutrients to the plants.

Just consider, halogen bulbs are roughly as efficient heaters as substrate
cables, and can be obtained much more cheaply. If you hook up the bulbs to
an in-tank thermostat, you can also use them to precisely control tank

I wonder why use of these wonder-heaters isn't more popular?
