Lighting fixtures/iron supplement
Hail fellow plant lovers,
I just recently set up a 25 gallon plant tank. For the lighting I plan
to use a Triton 24", Chroma 50 or 75 (which is better? - 50 or 75), and,
if I have room, a Gro-Lux (do they make T-8 versions of the Chroma or
Gro-Lux?). The only problem is I simply cannot find a fixture to house
these lights. All the pet stores I go to have hoods that only hold one
tube (it gets frustrating after asking about 6 pet stores). Would a
lighting store have a fixture that would be workable for an aquarium
top? How much would a two tube fixture cost? Three tube?
Can anyone recommend a good source of Fe? I tried the Security Iron
plus Chelate that Jim Kelly recommended but it was a powder and clouded
the water in my 10 gallon. I assume that the iron must be chelated?
I saw a liquid fertilizer containing 2.5% fully chelated iron and 2.5%
chelated zinc. There is nothing else in the solution. Would this be
good? How much should I use and at what time interval?
any suggestions would be most appreciated ... please e-mail your
thanks in advance,
