    Default Looking for lighting help for a frag tank.

    Looking to set up a 24 x24 x 8 (?) frag tank that I picked from from Daddybigs. Any suggestions for lighting? Trying to keep it somewhat inexpensive so I'd imagine that LEDs are going to be out.
    Thanks in advance, John.

    Do you have a budget? A 2ft 6 bulb t5 would work well or perhaps 2 PAR38 LEDs?

    What is your goal for this tank? is it connected to filtration as a grow-out? is it just for shows/swaps? Depending on what you want to do, or if you think long term, LEDs may well be the cheapest option if you DIY.
