macroalgae lighting


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I have a 20 long that's cycling right now with no lights yet. I was wondering what the best spectrum of lighting would be. I'm looking to buy an aquastyles 24 led kit but I don't know if it's worth it for a macroalgae tank. Do you guys have any suggestions?

couple of 6500k t5 bulbs would do ya just fine. I done have a macro tank, but i have 2 6500k 13w cfls over my fuge, and the macros in there grow like crazy!

Don't use LEDs for macros. T5s or power compacts will do just fine. 6500k is probably the best spectrum for growth, but I have 10,000k on my macro tank and it looks more balanced(less yellow)
