Hi guys, I have a 40 gallon thats been set up for about a year now, and all is going well. I have some plants in there at the moment, and there doing ok but i want to push their growth. so far i have about 2wpg of light in the tank. I would really appreciate some advice on what sort t8 tubes i should get so the plants will grow great, (co2 is being injected), and how many tubes i should use, The tank is 90cm long and 65cm tall, I have no idea what tubes are good for penetrating to the bottom of the tank, good for the plants. Thanks any help will be great

You wont get more light by changing bulbs, to get more light you need to add more bulbs. 6400K bulbs are a good color for plant growth.
