Hey guys – I am setting up a 6 foot long planted tank and I want to go first class. 🙂 I’m looking at getting 2 Twinstar 90 LED Series S lights. They don’t make 6′ lights – so 2 3′ lights). $309 each And using ADA AQUA SOIL – AMAZONIA LIGHT – POWDER 9L substrate. Anyone have an opinion or better suggestion? And know of the cheapest place to get this?
Well, I tried LED lights on 2 planted tanks. I was dissatisfied went back to T5ho lights. I have 4 48″ bulbs on a 90Gallon. 1 fixture of 2 bulbs sits on the tank ( with air space of course) 1 fixture of 2 bulbs is raised about 7 inches to do aquaponics , but it still gets light in the tank. I AM SOOOO JEALOUS OF YOUR NEW TANK.LOL. You could try Home Depot or Loews, they might help with price. I have heard of fishkeepers using shop lights, they are LED now too.
