Lighting for FOWLR...


New Member
Is there any special lighting i'll need for my 55gal FOWLR tank im starting? If so what kind, and does anyone have any suggestions or reviews on good lighting systems? :help:

I have PC with 2 actinic and 2 white (all 96 watts). That's all you need I believe. No heavy duty lighting required for FOWLR.


so power compact is good? i just got a set up from this guy and he has 4, 55wt power compacts with one blue and one white in each little thing.. is this good lighting?


my 90 gal came with one 4 ft strip since it was used for fw. How many strips will it take to make the tank look nice and bright. I only need for FOWLR. Would one actinic & one regular work?
