[APD] RE: MH lighting for 35 gallon tank


You DON'T want an MH light for a 35 gallon tank. Those are most suitable
for tanks over 100 gallons in size. You need about 35 to 40 watts of
fluorescent light, probably in a 2' U-shaped CF. Makes some calls to
lighting stores & hydroponics places. There is a website showing all
kinds of fluorescent lights, wattage and lumen output that I referenced
several months back. The biggest challenge is to find a suitable
reflector for your lamp. This you may have to DIYS.

Good luck! The hex shape is nice for plants.
