On full for 12 hours a day. Is that too much? The floating plants off some shade to the plants below.
I'm still very new to the hobby so learning all the time. I've not seen any melting of any leaves and the tank has been planted almost 2 weeks now. I was using the light this way because I heard that stronger plants means less algae, and I thought stronger light would equal stronger plants. I really don't want to encourage algae.For submerged plants we normally do 8 hours/day. More just encourages algae.
I’ve got a 17l 25cm cube with a Betta (so low flow, which is a factor) and I’m running the same light at 25%. I turned it up to 50% and my S. Repens melted - presumably too much light. Buce and Annubias in same tank were ok. So it could be S. Repens is just sensitive to changes and would have put up new leaves.
So I’m trying to gauge what power with the ONF Nano is “too much light”. If you get on OK it tells me this is possible and I just need to adjust slowly. Please keep us posted how you get on.
