Thread: My first tank light tuning

  1. #1

    My first tank light tuning

    Ok, so my knowledge was very limited at the time
    I was active on a small forum where more light=more pearling=great plants was a rule..
    ..so i decided to tune my 50lit tank from 1x15w t8 to 4x20w bulbs.
    It pearled all right
    Took about a month to distroy the plants lower leaves , got some BBA on the anubias.
    Than i sold that tank ..
    I wonder how it would look few month later with that light and diy co2

    Good job though.

    Nice work is nice work, even if it was misdirected.
