    I currently have a 24" current nova extreme fixture with 2-24w bulb. Do you guys think its abit low for a 29 gal heavily planted tank? Should i upgrade to 30" corrallife with 2-31w bulb?

    Plants? CO2? Critters? Other Than That No Real Questions Occur.

    The planned upgrade sounds fine or the current lighting i have?

    It's a 29gal excel EI tank. I recently Planted a red leaves plan. Its healthy like all
    the other plants, but its turning green.

    I was told that my bulbs were the problem coz i have not replaced them in four years. I just bought a replacement bulbs (1-24w 6700k and 1-24w colormax) for $35. I can still return the bulbs and just replace the whole fixture altogether. I just have to buck up another $80 for 30" aqualife 50/50 fixture. Should i take the plunge?

    Hi,

    Without pressurized CO[SUB]2,[/SUB] I would stick with the current light fixture.
    :)

    Four years is an awful long time for a bulb, replace the bulbs, if you were happy before, you will be happy again.
    :cool:
