    Re: Discus tank build/help

    Ok! Thanks for the food advice. Iíve got the fish in a friends tank for the time being, as this sump is going through a redesign. Iíve decided to do a full fluidized sump design. Iíve upgraded the sump from a 20l to a 30 Gallon and split the tank using a divider to hold the media. Ordered 3 gallons of medium sized k1 media from eBay. Hereís the link,

    Now, instead of using 2 smaller heaters, Iíve decided in the interest of saving power strip space, to go with just 1 bigger one. Donít worry, Iím picking up a backup.

    Now. The bigger thing. Lights.....um Iím thinking about 2 finnex Ray 24/7 lights. Would that be bright enough for a deep tank like the 90? Any suggestions that wonít rob me like kessil? I know they are the best but a price tag like that for 1...and I would need 3...

    To be honest i don't know any think about this light....just having a quick read up on it and as far as i can see there is only the finnex planted that i can find and not the finnex ray.

    The finnex planted as far as i can tell will be ok upto 24" deep and if you are using two of them i can't see any problem with them and they come with a remote as well.

    As for the heater i would say a 300w will do the job for you and can be left in the sump.

    Cool! Sorry about the ďRayĒ I meant planted + 24/7. My mistake. I may try just one and if itís not bright enough for all the corners, Iíll order a second one. As for the heater, thanks for telling me before I got two 200w ones.
