Lighting for tall tank suggestions
#1
I am setting up a Vivarium for (hope to find) Ranitomeya Fantasica True Nominal frogs. My enclosure is 24"W x 18"D x 36 "T. I am struggling with finding lighting that is appropriate. Suggestions please for something that is not several hundred $$. I do want LED...

36 inches is def on the deep side and will require something decent. I have 3-4 such tanks and while normal amazon.com and ebay LEDS are good, you may struggle to get good bottom growth.

There are dozens of brands -almost all good, out there and to your good fortune, most are very affordable and last a long time.

Again, as long as you read the advertisement and possible go by the buyer recommendations and feedback, you are good to go. I do not have a fav -mine are 'satellite' I think. 4 years old and good enough.

another consideration is some frogs do not like the high light and you may want to see if there are multiple settings and a high / low / medium of that sort.

I'll do a little more research and see if I can get back to you on this.

Awesome, Thanks!
I did find this available but not sure if the lumens is adequate.

That's a good light as is the others from that vendor. You can also email or PM them - Arizona, I think, and inquire more specifically.
