Lighting suggestions for a 20L
I am going to transfer my 20 zebra danios, 12 neons, two plecos from my 55
gallon tank to my 20L which is currently empty. I also have two amazon
swords and some water sprite. Right now, it's got a one tube flourescent
(but I'll probably get rid of it) Any suggestions on what kind of lighting I
should have? I'm open-minded and have a little bit of DIY-er in me (i.e. I'm
not afraid to get my hands dirty to save a few bucks). I want to have a
setup that is low cost (short and long run). I'm thinking twin tube 30"
flourescent hood as the easiest option. Also, I know that for a 4' long tube
(40w) it is the most cost-effective flourescent tube for the wattage you get
-- any way to rig up something to look nice with a shop light or something?
Any other ideas?
Oh, and about the bulbs. What should I use that would be the best for the
plants? Two vita-lites maybe?
Thanks in advance,
