what is a good bulb to grow algea?i have a few plecos (5) in my tank and
i wanted to grown some algea for them to eat.the bulbs i have now dont
seem to be working.i dont know the wattage.i leave them on for 12 hours
then the other 12 i leave my moon lights on.i do have a UV sterlizer so
this might be a reason i cant get no algea.any help would be great

The brightest bulb you can use would be the best bulb. Warm white

Need Mercedes parts ? -
