For fish only aquarium, with 3 watts of lighting per gallon of water in the tank. This amount will be the perfect light control algae - any strong, you may notice green algae begins to form. Remember to change the lights every 8 months to maintain a consistent light intensity.

One is to make your tank from the water evaporation. The second is to hold your fish tank metal halide lamp ballasts and feeding into your tank and three dust and other things. With a good marine fish tank, you have a tank hood, fish tank with your filters, heaters and aquarium fish lamp wires pre-cut hole equipment. When things get more and more like an aquarium lighting aquarium supplies, you have to get quality equipment.

My question is if that is correct? I am currently looking to
build/purchase a 36" PCF that utilizes 2-55w bulbs. I plan on having
live plants and want to simulate dawn and dusk by having one come on
just before the other and vice versa and the end off the day. Can I
control each bulb or do I need more than one ballast to do this?

I think we need to use led lights in modern world, They not get too hot and good for our aquariums
