More Info

Description: tank is 48" x 12"x12" lighting flourescent tubes :arcadia original tropical and freshwater tropical 42" tubes at 38 watts using homemade foil reflectors to increase light output.

Advice: if your growing plants get lots of fast growing plants in and get some shrimp and algae eating fish such as otocinclus i only kept my lights on for 8 hours till tank was established this should help to keep algae at bay co2 injection also gets rid of some types of algae . dont be put off at the first set back I have had a few of them and will probably have some more in the future. go online check out the forums , join a club read books all this will help you through some of the setbacks and hopefully stop you making them in the first place PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE.
