    Default DIY Multiple Tank Lighting?


    0 Not allowed!
    So I have a dresser with 3 tanks on top of it, 2.5, 5, and cylicrical 2.5. I want to plant the 2.5 and 5 gallon tanks. They all have DIY sponge filters. No heater but room is always 70+.

    There is 36 inches of room. So im thinking of hanging a light on the dresser over the tanks but I need to know how to go about it sense im not a plant or light guy. Like, how bright do I need for lights? Will it even work?

    Maybe one of those under the counter light fixtures. Being that the tanks are not that deep, should not have any problem lighting it up. Just make sure the bulb is 6500k spectrum, if you don't see spectrum mentioned on the bulb, look for wording like daylight or superdaylight.
