    Anyone using Hydor External Heaters ?

    been googling to try and find a solution for the clicking noise and came across this. it sounds more like it may be related to the flow through the heater.

    T5 luminaire - comparing Arcadia to cheaper option

    1. There is no light fins with this luminaire so i suppose it all depends on how high above the tank you have it if you suspend it,but with the legs it should be minimal. 2.There should be plenty of room for lily pipes etc. cheers.. cheers...if

    How do you know how much light?

    I would have thought its guaged on how much effort and time your willing to put in. high light=lots of effort+more expense i.e co2/ferts/regular water changes low light=less effort+less expense/no co2/fewer ferts/very few water changes.. hope this helps cheers....
