New Set UP
We are setting up a new 100 gallon tank (60" wide) and looking to have live plants this go around. My current lighting system needs to be replaced so my question is...What type of lighting should I use? on somewhat of a budget.
Just a little bit about our tank:
gravel substrate (can add another substrate if needed)
no fish yet but semi-aggressive or tropical planned
we like to leave the light on for a night light (can be put on a timer though)
Currently location is a dark corner
Thank You for all your help.

Welcome to the forum.
Don't leave the light on 24/7. like all higher life forms, fish need a period of rest.
