Best Setting For Finnex Planted+ 24/7 When Away

  1. SpeedyFish Member Member

    Hello all,

    I will be going away for 10 days and my main concern is the lighting. I'm using the Finnex planted+ 24/7 for my 46 Gallon tank that have plants in it. I find the 24 hour setting is still too bright especially the night settings. Just wondering would a the Planted+ work well on a timer or should I just forget the light and use the ambient light in my room?

    Yes, you can put it on a timer. From what I understand, it'll reset every time it comes on, but you can alternatively put it on one of the constant settings and use it like a regular light.

    I use a timer on mine and it works great. The 24/7 SE which I also have doesn't work with a timer, it starts at the setting it was turned off at unlike the 24/7 which starts the 24 hour cycle over at the begining.
