  1. Default high lighting - java ferns

    0 Not allowed!
    im looking at buying a new tank to replace my hex and i will then have room for a lighting fixture, i am looking at the arcadia original tropical bulbs, they are lighting specific for plant growth.

    i know java ferns and also java moss are considered low light plants, would high plant lighting damage the plant or cause any problems with them?

    any info wuld be appreciated

    18w and i believe its T8, its a 24 inch bulb, if reducing to a 15w bulb which would be a slightly shorter bulb helps i could consider this once i look at the hood in more detail :)

    You are no where near having too much light. For a java fern it should be fine.
