Wats up fishtank friends.Just got a quick question. I have been searching the net for a light fixture for my 10 gallon soon to be planted dirt tank and wow there are so many freaking options! i saw a few but Im not sure if it would work. Im not going to be running co2 and i dont want a crazy algae party in my tank. Heres a couple that i was looking at. Let me know if this would be too muck light for a 10 gallon please! Thanks
