Hello, I recently set up my 60gal cube (24x24x24) tank. So far I only have live sand (2-3in), 4 hermits, 3 snail(dont know the name) and 1 nassarius snail. I'm looking for a good light to start with so I can show off my progress to visitors over the holidays. I'll be building a canopy for the tank and looking for some imput from you guys here. I've been reading a lot about MH,T5,PC, etc but im confused. This is my very first tank and I would like to get the best bang for the buck (that includes electric bill) I've been leading into building my own set of LED fixture. What you guys think I should do? get a 2x24 T5 to get me going while I build my canopy and my LED's? If so, Would any 2x24 T5 be good? I know if I do go with the T5 to start I need one 10,000K and one atinic. But what would be better for the LED's? 2 RB to 1 CW ratio? or a 1:1 ratio? All imputs will be take into considaration. Thank's!
