    Hello all. I am in the process of starting a new 250 gallon aquarium. I hope I can grow a few plants in it not many because I will have cichlids and they can tear them up. But I would like a couple large Amazon swords and such in there eventually. I am curious to see how others have done big planted tanks as well. If you have pics that would be amazing advice is welcomed as well. At the moment I am leaning towards a diy LED flood light system but not sure on how many watts to use. Or how many lights.

    Kessil tuna suns are very powerful and suitable for large tanks, but they are pricey. George Farmer has quite a few youtube videos and instagram photos of tanks that use them.

    The Kessil's are great but pricey, I have a pair of 360 Sun's on my 150 gallon. That's why I didn't mention them. 7744a57730d6289e90817b3d55bf3728.jpg
