I have a 75 gallon aquarium that I'm going to be setting up soon. The idea is to have it as a high-light, high-fertilization tank wherein I'll be growing some of the more difficult stuff.
Lighting a 75 gallon noC02 - Aquarium Plants - Barr Report
Currently have a single strip T8 on my 75 gallon. Not going to cut it. Also I have been noticing some brown gunk on the sides of the aquarium. I always assumed it was me overfeeding the fish. But in reading perhaps this is brown algae from not enough light in the tank? Is that true? The bulb in there is at least a year old, and I suspect older to be honest (its the same one that was in there when I bought the setup off craigslist a year ago).
75 gallon aquarium--what watt light? • Bearded Dragon . org
I have heard aquarists offer up the advice that to keep coral, they should have between 2 and 6 watts of lighting per gallon of aquarium water. By this rule of thumb, they are essentially recommending that an aquarist with a 10 gallon tank needs a light consuming 20-60 watts of light, depending on the lighting demands of the individual specimens they intend to keep. By comparison, the aquarist with a 75 gallon tank would need 150 to 450 watts.
