Angels and bright light?
I just put a T5 HO light on my new 20 gallon tank and it is ridiculously bright next to my established 30 gallon planted tank next to it. I am in no rush to change the lighting to the 30gal tank, as I putting the money into the 20 currently. The 30gal currently just has a single T8 flora-glo bulb. How would 2 Koi Angels react to a possible upgrade?
The 30gal tank currently has two Koi Angels, 8 Harlequin Rasboras, 8 Bloodfin tetras, and 4 green cories.55g: Planted Tank: Firemouth, Blue Acara, Rainbow Cichlid, 15 Bloodfin Tetras, and 8 Panda Cories
45g Planted Tank: 2 Koi Angelfish, 19 Rummy Nose Tetras, and 6 Green Cories
20g Planted Tank: 8 Harlequin Rasboras, 4 Peppered Cories, and 8 Amano Shrimp
