  1. Hello! I have an Aqueon 29 gallon bow-front fish tank and the stock light that came with the tank seems to not be working anymore, even after I installed a new tube. I'm interested in getting a new light (LED perhaps?) and would appreciate any suggestions and/or advice on where to look to find suitable lights for my particular tank. If there's a thread that someone knows that has information about lights, I would also appreciate someone tagging it here. =) Thanks!
  2. A few weeks ago I dropped the cheapo light that came with my 40B into the water. :yilkes I gave it a few days before turning it back on and within a few minutes the room smelled like smoke and the light was shut off. So..... Time for a new light? The 125 still has the fixture I used before we upgraded. It's a decent light, and I'm lazy, cheap, and not totally sure what I'd want in its place since it is only 48" long and leaves some areas dark. So I decided to let the broken 40B light be an opportunity for experimentation. Anyway, started looking around over the weekend. There was no method to my purchase. I saw this, it had a low profile, good reviews, and came from a brand I recognized. So I bought a 36" Finnex "Stingray." It is smaller than I thought it'd be! very sleek. it definitely puts off a ton of light, and easily lights up a tall and deep tank. BUT, it is very purpley blue. Unlike some LED lights that have a moonlight setting, you cannot turn the blue off. With my regular t5ho lighting: (yes these pictures are awful) with the Finnex: But! I didn't buy it for the 125. I bought it for my daughter's purple fish tank. And it is fabulous. Bottom line. Would I recommend this light? Yes! But my enthusiasm comes with a disclaimer! I recommend it if you don't mind a blue hue. I DO mind a blue hue in the 125, I guess I prefer a more natural-y light in there. But otherwise, it's a yes. Hope this was at least a little bit helpful, to someone out there.
  3. Hi Guys, First time poster, long time reader. I love this site it has helped me save a few fish! So, I am about to move to a new place and I decided that I would like to go bare bottom in my 60 gallon and I have a few questions. I have tried to grow plants to no success in my tank with stock lighting that is only 30 watts. However I noticed recently that I am growing plenty of green algae, so I'm wondering perhaps if I added an LED system to it maybe it would help? Or just go LED all together? I was thinking about something like this. http://www.petsmart.com/supplies/lights/national-geographic-trade-deluxe-programmable-led-aquarium-light-zid36-21386/cat-36-catid-300073?var_id=36-21386 I have experience growing plants in a 10 gallon tropical tank, that is getting 2 watts/gallon, my amazon sword is growing out of the top! So I am familiar with growing in a low-tech setup, I was only intending to plant something like swords, crypts, etc. in my 60 gal. since these are goldfish we're talking about!!! My second question is how has going bare bottom worked out for some of you guys? And with potted plants what kind of pots did you use? Will normal ones from places like Lowes work? Thanks a bunch I look forward to hearing your replies!!
  4. How long do LED light fixtures tend to last? I've had mine approximately a year and it's been fizzling out on me a couple times tonight Should I expect to be buying a new light soon?
  5. Hey, guys. I recently planted my 40gal with oodles of short anubias. I also bought 39W LED lighting to help my anubias grow a little better. However, whenever I turn it the LED light on, my goldfish get super stressed! Peachos bottom sits in the corner and Lorenzo will start gasping in the (meager) shade of the plants. And then they snap back to grazing mode the second I turn it off, haha. Is it just too bright to the point I have to use a different light? Or should I buy more shade producing decorations?
