You can use Pll or T5s, lower the water level in the starting is better to ease the initial hurdle.


Available in Delhi also.

First of all check there color spectrum. If there are around 6500 K, can use in a planted tank.

The Philips LED tube is warm white and hence may not be suitable for planted tanks.
