    Default What nano to buy?

    Hi all... Currently have a 90g and want to try a nano. I was looking at the JBJ 29g LED, any pros cons or advice? I thought the LED so heat is not an issue. I want to start off with somethiNg good and upgradiNg later...

    Thanks,
    Dave

    The LEDs on that are not the best. I'd get the ecopico or remove the hood on a biocube29 and replace them with an AI nano or a PAR38. It'll cost the same or less and the lighting will be better.

    The biocube HQI has a metal Halide and I hear the heat issues are not so bad on them. Im looking for a used one myself. What did you decide on?
