Number of lights??

Recommended Posts



Thank you for taking the time to read my question!

I need new lights on a 125 gal tank, 18 X 24 X 72” planted cichlid. I am replacing some terrible clearance LED’s from a box store. The  top has 3 lid sections across the top. Should I buy 2X 36”‘a  or 3X 24”‘s??!! 

I am considering the Fluval Plant 3.0


thank you!!!!!!!

I purchased a 24" light for a 30" tank and am disappointed by the lack of light at the edges. I should have purchased 2x15" to go edge to edge. That said it depends on what you plan on doing with your tank. Do you want 2 lighting zones or 3? Do you want to manage 2 lights or 3?

Good luck with your tank!
