  1. Hello, I am planning on putting a Java Fern in my existing 10 gallon tank and it has a Finnex Stingray light. ACO considers the Stingray on a 10 gallon tank “high light” under its light guide. Will the Java Fern considered a low light plant be ok with the Stingray light??
  2. I think it would be fun to start 3 similar aquariums at the same time, but try 3 different strategies for the substrate and fertilizer. First a Walstad type dirted substrate - in this case dirt from my yard Second, CaribSea's Eco-Complete And third, a 'normal' tank with CaribSea's Peace Rive substrate supplemented with Aquarium Co-Op's Easy Root Tabs and Easy Green liquid fertilizer. For this experiment (okay, this is definitely not an experiment as I do not have a hypothesis, any controls, or replicants) I will use three 40 gallon breeder aquariums that will likely have sponge filters, heaters, and Finnex lights. It should take me about a week or two to gather all the resources for this experiment (again, definitely not an experiment as my N on each tank will be 1, but my fun quotient ought to be greater than 1 because this will also be an attempt to setup 3 aquariums that are some more than green water fry tanks or mulm factories).
  3. Hello, I am thinking about buying a new finnex stingray clip on light. But I have a straight wall that I can’t clip the entire back piece of the light on. Can this clip on light bend backwards or the direction to the button. If so that would be great! Thanks
  4. Hey everyone. Is finnex stingray light considered low light or medium light? Thank you!
  5. So wondering if the legs will be long enough or do I need to go a size up? Only plants I have are Java Ferns so don’t really too much light.
  6. Anyone know if my finnex stingray 2 will be enough light for pearl weed in a 40 breeder or 20 long?
  7. Hello Nerms I am in the process of transferring my goldfish from a 55 to 75 gallon aquarium and inspired by Corey I would like to add a crinum calamistratum. My 55 was lit by a 48in finnex stingray and I planned on using it on the 75. Corey's light guide states that in order to have medium light on a 75 I will need 2-4 fluval 3.0s. What would you add to my stingray in order to produce enough light to grow a great crinum?
  8. I have been playing with a Nicrew light for the last few weeks, and while it is a pretty decent light, I feel for the $$ the Finnex (a little more expensive) might be a better option. I know the COOP only sells the model 1 stingrays and I am curious why. Does anyone have experience with both care to weigh in?
  9. Hello! I am planning on setting up a 20 gallon soon and I was thinking of getting a stingray from the Co-op, I want to try and carpet some pearl weed, and grow some Scarlett temple will this be good enough?
  10. how can I dim my finnex stingray? it is to bright for my 20 long and I don't think my crypts like it. and my anubias/java fern are growing a lot of algae my ideas get some more floating plants, put semi transparent tape on the light. what I can't/don't want to do raise the light, add a dimmer. thanks for the help 🙂
  11. So when first setting up my tank I bought a nicrew RGB 24/7 automated aquarium light. Unfortauntely I have not had the best of experiance with this light. The only thing I kind of like about it is that there is a timer so that I don't have to manually turn it off and on. But the light is either constanlty on sunrise or sunset or night mode making it the color look orange, or blue. Only from 12am-4pm will the light be on white. Because it turns on at 6am at low itensity and then 2pm being the highest intesity and then turns off at 12am being the lowest intensity. The ligh is on for 18hours a day (If i did my math right 😉 ) because of this green water is on the next level, I have already had two outbreaks. But I can't change the intesnity of the light, it is 0% customizable. so time to change the light The Fluval 3.0 is of interest to me but is to expensive for right now. So after the possitive reviews I have seen on corys channel I have decided to do make a buy on the Finnex Stingray Aquarium Light. I wanted to see peoples experiance with this light. Is there a timer or do I have to buy a smart plug? Is there a dimmer?
  12. After @Cory discussed the water tightness of various lighting options in yesterday's live stream I had no intention of running an experiment. My cats were in the room during the live stream and must have heard the discussion because they ran a humidity torture test on one of my 36" Finnex Stringray lights (the one over the 'Nerm' tank in the dirted tank project). Here was their experimental setup: And from the top: I am not sure how long the cats had the experiment running as I was out for a couple of hours this morning getting cinder blocks and 2 x 12's for the aquarium stand for my two new 75 gallon aquariums. As far as I can tell being completely submerged and running for some period of time had little effect on the functionality of the light. I am pretty sure this voids the warranty, but given the durability of the lights my concerns about the warranty are reduced.
  13. so I had a finnex stingray fall in my tank and apparently water damage isn't covered in the warranty and 60$ is a lot to me it still works luckily. so what can I do? @Brandy I've seen you do a lot of diy do you have any ideas? thanks everyone
  14. Would a one finnex stingray provide adequate light to have jungle val or Italian val grow and thrive in a 40 breeder assuming root tabs and liquid fertilizer is used? Thanks in advance.
  15. This may sound like a silly question but my tank is a 20G high that came from one of those kits that has an LED strip built into the bottom of a plastic lid. Not great for my plants. I want to upgrade my lights to this: Finnex Stingray LED Lights. WWW.AQUARIUMCOOP.COM Slim Profile Low Wattage Affordable The Finnex Stingray LEDs are a great value light. They've been out for a... but I don’t think I can do that unless I completely remove the lid off my aquarium. How can I use this light with my aquarium? Do I have to buy a glass lid? Do I run it without a lid? I have no fish that are known for jumping but that seems risky. If I buy a glass lid, how can I ensure access to my HOBs?
  16. I'm seeking some help. I have a planted tank. Community Fish. 125 G. Canister filter. 2 jets for circulation. UV light. Black beard algae issue. CO2/02 Injection. What are some good light cycle suggestions in general and to help with this issue?
  17. Hello everyone, I was just wondering if anyone from the Co-OP has mentioned when the Finnex Stingray 48in lights will be back in stock. Has anyone heard anything?
  18. So I'm sure this is a topic that is beat to death, but every tank is different. Ive been battling algae, mostly black beard algae, and green spot algae, and I can't seem to get rid of it. I have a 60 gallon tank that is 48" long, 24" high" and 12" wide. I bought a light off of Amazon thinking it would be a good light since I was new to keeping live plants. (The BeamWorks DA FSPEC LED light is the one I purchased) thinking it would get to the bottom of the tank. Now I'm thinking that I may be the cause of my algae problem. It is a 10,000k light. I've been looking at the finnex stingray 48" light on aquarium coops site. Would it be a good light for my tank? I'm also dosing co2, easy green and now some easy carbon. The tank has been established for a little over a year now. Live plants include; Amazon sword, Java fern, jungle Val and regular Val, dwarf aquarium lily and pogostemon Stellatus. Thanks for you help guys and gals.
  19. To give a little background first. I have a 40 breeder with a Stingray 2 on it (like the light, but don't like the silver color), a 20 long and some other 10 gallons with the Hygger lights on them. For Inexpensive lights, I like the Hygger lights, I just want something a little nicer on this since it will be in the den. We are upgrading one of the 10 gallons to a 29 for Christmas and I am torn between the Stingray (1st version) and the Finnex Planted+. I won't have CO2 and I don't think the plants will be anything too difficult (annubias, java fern, micro sword, etc). My only concern with the Stingray is that it won't be enough light for the plants nor enough lights to illuminate the tank (I like semi-bright aquariums). Any thoughts on these two lights. BTW...my budget doesn't fit a Fluval 😒
  20. I have a Finnex Stingray light (bought through Aquarium Coop!) that isn't being used on an aquarium at the moment. Would I see worthwhile results if I hung this light above my houseplants and use it to provide some extra light over winter? My plants are next to a window, but get a lot less light this time if year. I'm not trying to farm indoor tomatoes in December... Just trying to keep my birdsnest fern alive. Thanks for any advice you can offer me!
  21. I bought a 20" Finnex Stingray (1 - without the moonlight feature) for a standard ten gallon tank. Holy Moly, the light is intense. I think it is actually too bright for the fish, as they all immediately cowered in shadows of plants and rocks. As a temporary fix, I placed tissue paper on the glass to diffuse and block some of the light. I don't anticipate this will work long term, as tissue paper and water will likely just cause a mess. So the questions are: (1) Will the fish eventually become accustomed to the more intense light, or (2) Anyone know where I can find an opaque piece of plastic that I can cut to size as a more permanent solution? Thanks!
  22. Hello, I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts or experience with lighting that can go in your tank? I am looking to set up my first 10gal planted tanks (yes plural, go medium or go home?). Really the only place for them, that my dog won’t slide into, are my bookcases with limited height space. I was planning to buy the 20” stingray suggested by Aquarium Coop, but am not sure they will fit under the shelf. Then I saw an ad for an LED light you can suction cup on the underside of a glass lid. Could this work? I am planning to stick with easy plants and beginner fish. I really like the Windelov Java fern and Banana plants. I have had good luck with Anubias and water sprite with my betta, so this gives you an idea of my experience/skill level. Thank you in advance!
