Frag tank grow out system


Recommended Posts

I think I'm going to use this has any one used this?


I recently got my hands on a 40 gallon breeder that was a turtle tank, but now I'm going to tun it into a frag grow out system.

The dimensions for the tank that can be filled with water is 36"L X 18" W X 8" H

I'm trying to figure out what light, filter and power head flow.

MY girlfriend suggested that I put the same light that I have on my 70 gallon.

witch is

4x T5HO 36" JBJ light w/ three led moon lights

2X 10k

2x420 actinic bulbs

but what do you guys think?

Based on my experiences with different fixtures and my own DIY you want something that's using B, RB and UV/violet LEDs for the blue spectrum and if if you can use a fixture that does not need a fan that's a plus as I am seeing fixtures with fans either clogging up from dust or sucking salt spray into the fixture. The buildmyled.com 14000K three different blues as well as CW, G and R. Also if you look at cost/wattage the 2' 14000K buildmyled.com is 39 watts @ $181 vs $209 for a 25 watt Panorama. Any LED strip light that is put inside a closed hood will need some kind of ventilation. Even though they use less electricity they still generate heat and LEDs are more sensitive to excess heat than fluorescent.
