Re: Aquatic Plants Digest V3 #1065

Moishe wonders about Wonderlites:

I have had Wonderlites, 2x 160W over a 60 gall tank.
I would go the other way than Eric - instead of too much light, the tank
received too little light  - perhaps not absolutely, but definitely
relatively to the previous set up. Also, the Wonderlites put out a lot of
heat. If the bulbs are 5" above the water, your temperature could have gone
up by quite a few degrees. That would have increase the plant metabolism,
nutrient requirements, etc, etc.
