Re: [APD] Eclipse systems

Any particular Eclipse you have in mind? I have the system 2, which is a 29 tall, with 2 - 15W standard fluorescent bulbs in it (towards the front, in this case). It grows crypts, bolbitis, and anubias quite nicely, but with the tank 2' tall and barely 1 watt per gallon, it's not a lot of light. You can retrofit it with AH supply lights and an Eheim Eccoball internal filter...but in that case, why by the eclipse at all, since you'd be throwing away everything but the tank?

My son has an eclipse 6, which has similar lighting levels (I think it is an 8W bulb), but since the bulb sits so much closer to the substrate, it's actually a fun little tank for planting.
