T8 Lighting


New member
I bought a 29Gal tank to try my hand at keeping clownfish.

I purchased a "loss leader" tank at the LFS from Ocean Systems. The hood is an "all in one" filter and lighting system.

The lighting system is just a couple of Natural Daylight, 24", T8 bulbs. I've replaced one of these bulbs with a 420 Actinic bulb for better color.

I am not interested in keeping corals at this time. However, I am interested in a mushroom or two.
Will this lighting setup support mushrooms?

Would this lighting setup be considered "Low Lighting" or "Moderate Lighting"?

Did you change the bulbs in your lighting system or are you still using the Marineland bulbs that came with it?
