I have a 55 gallon breeder aquarium with a 48 inch fluval' 2.0 over it.The light fixture is controllable with a wifi' controller. The plants that I am using are low to medium light plants. I will be injecting c02. I want to get the best growth and color from the plants. What would you suggest on the light intensity percent since I can control the light from 0 to 100 percent? Also how long should I keep the lights on for?
Thanks

hi
Depending on the type of light.if use led light You have to consider the lumen and if t5 or t8 lamps are your light,watt on litres is important.
