    Hi ALL,

    Maybe this is a dum custion,but rather dum for 5 min then rest of our lives.;)

    I am thinking on getting a monty plate later one once my tank is more mature.


    Will Monty Plate due well under Boyu lights if you placed in in the middle to the top of the tank?

    Thanx in Advance:thumbup:

    I dont think the lights in the Boyu will be enough. They are tolerant of lower light but the small T5s in the nano is not enough IMO.

    You will have to tell us what lights you're running in there? I'm not familiar with your boyu

    A green monti cap will be fine. I have found the purple and red ones to be less tolerant of lower light levels and they just brown out. Try a small frag of a green one and place it as high up as possible.

    Boyu TL450 (50lt) it is PL18W Blue and white tubes an 2 of each n the lid.
    The tank is also not as high as the Boyu Tl550 (120lt).

    I was thinking of putting it againts the back of the tank about 10 -15cm from the lights. Will this be oky for green monty?


    I will try the green frag. once tank is mature.
