Corbidorbidoodle Posted March 4, 2022 Share Posted March 4, 2022 Hey, y'all. So I have a 55 long with mostly stem plants and a couple swords. (anna buncha fish) Inert substrate with root tabs, no CO2, settled in at about 10ppm nitrate. I had a 36" light on there and the plants at the edge weren't growing too well. The stuff in the middle was doing pretty well though. It was a cheap NICREW ClassicLED. I wanted a 48" light and went with the Stingray 2. But it seems really bright now... I like it, but do you think this is way too much for my setup? In general, is the S-2 considered Medium Light? I know there are variables, like depth and what you want to grow... But would a S-1 be better? I really like the low-tech, low maintenance tank. I don't want to have to dose a bunch, or run CO2, and trim every two days. I could return the S-2 and get a S-1. Or any other 48" light really. I don't mind spending a little money, but I don't need anything fancy that I can control with my phone or whatever. I appreciate any advice or recommendations.
