In this episode of Aquarium Tip Tank we share aquarium tips to help you light your aquarium. Included in this episode are some tips to help you select the correct aquarium lighting system for the livestock that you intend to care for. We had to break it down into a few parts so that each podcast episode wasn’t too long. In Part 1 we discuss the lighting needs of all types of aquarium livestock and we try to explain all of the fluorescent and metal halide lighting options. In Part 2 we will discuss LED lighting options and explain how I went about choosing the lighting system for the marine aquarium that I am currently in the process of setting up.
