View Full Version : Lighting for cheato

04/05/2006, 07:27 PM
Well I dug out an old eclipse system 12. It has 2 15W T8 at 5500K. Would this be enough to grow cheato?

I am considering making a stand for it, placing it next to my 65 gallon, and plumbing it into my sump. I figure I just need to drill for a bulkhead to gravity feed my sump and use a small pump to return back to it. I would like to turn it into a fuge growing cheato and maybe add a seahorse or 2 at a later time. Thoughts concerns? Lighting ok or do I need to retro fit it?

Thats plenty of light. I get better growth out of my 15W NO bulb than I do with those home depot PC bulbs.
