I recently started an aquarium at home and I thought some of you might want to follow along, as it uses several products I have personally never used before and some products new to the market. I will provide a list of what products I’ve used for my setup, and what my thoughts are on each item used as I put it into daily use. The newest product used in this setup is the lighting, which is the Marineland Plant LED lighting system. After hearing some skepticism as to whether or not this light will really grow plants, and seeing the product sample our photographer had, I decided I was impressed enough by the light that I wanted to know for myself how it would perform.
