29g Upgrade
« on: November 08, 2010, 07:25:38 pm »
I've been running an Eclipse 3 29g with built in bio wheel and T8 lighting. I'm running two 18 watt T8 one 6500 daylight and 420 Actinic. I currently have two fp clowns, one hermit, two snails, two mushroom and a couple of pulsing xenias. My problem is i'm planning on adding some BTA and what i've read on RC that my lighting wouldn't be enough them.

I was looking at Marine Depot for a new lighting and a HOB filter system.

I was hoping some input on using this lighting:

and for the HOB filter:

I honestly don't know a lot about lights, but that looks like a nice one, and it is certainly rated well.  I like that it has individual timer controls for the lights as well as the moon lights, the only drawback I see is that it doesn't have a built in fan, but you might not need to worry about that.  I'm actually going to bookmark this light, I've been thinking of getting a new one for my 29g.
