Light for a 10 gallon plant tank....
I have a question on the lighting for a 10 gallon plant tank. I recently
set up this tank about 4 weeks ago. I have had success with my plants,
the only plant not doing well is one green foxtail, which i know needs
lots of light. However, with my one 15 watt 10,000k bulb I have troubles
with it heating the water a little and raising the temp above the safe
zone. Now i have heard of some people using 2 or 3 15 watt bulbs on a ten
gallon. Isn't this too much light? Is my 1 15 watt too little. I know
you want about 1-2 watts per gallon, do i have to buy a twin tube light
for my 10 gallon, or is there another way i can get more light in the
tank without buying a brand new hood? Do I really need more light? My
nutrients and CO2 levels are great, (I have a yeast reactor). Any
comments on this would be appreciated.
