Good Lighting Requirements
LED lighting is great for aquarium plants
The Spruce / Thomas R. Reich
Light is necessary for the photosynthesis required for the health and growth of all aquarium plants. Proper lighting enables the plants to absorb the carbon dioxide gases the fish breathe out. Too much light will cause the appearance of microscopic life known as algae. Too much light and a type of floating algae can grow that will turn the water green; too little light and plants suffer; but with the right level of light, some small spots of green algae appear on the surface of rocks and sides of a glass aquarium. Some algae are desirable, fish nibble on it, and it adds to the natural look of a healthy community aquarium.
In general, if an aquarium is near a sunny window, it may only need 5 hours of artificial light per day. But in direct sunlight, the algae growth will be out of control, even without any artificial light at all. For best results, an aquarium should be placed in an area where sunlight never reaches it directly. Artificial lighting should be on for a minimum of 8 hours per day but can stay on 10 to 12 hours if this enables better viewing in the evening for the hobbyist.
Replace Incandescent Lighting
If you are using old-fashioned incandescent lighting, the lighting should be about 25 Watts per square foot of aquarium water. However, incandescent lighting is obsolete for several reasons:
Incandescent lighting is inefficient at penetrating the water below 12 inches in most cases and does not evenly light the aquarium.
It causes excessive heat and can warm the water above the temperature you have the heater set to maintain, then allows the water to cool when the lighting is turned off.
Incandescent lighting is very expensive to operate compared to fluorescent and LED lighting.
Incandescent lighting bulbs have a very short lifespan, and can even break if splashed with water while turned on.
Fluorescent Lighting vs. LED
Another type of available lighting for aquariums is fluorescent and compact fluorescent lighting. If a fluorescent lighting fixture is used, be sure to use the bulbs specifically rated for aquarium plant growth. The light spectrum needed for plant growth is entirely different than a fluorescent bulb one would find in the kitchen or office lighting. Do not use fluorescent light bulbs from a hardware store; they may fit within the fixture, but they are not ideal for growing aquarium plants.
LED lighting has made amazing progress in the growth of exotic plants with some higher-end fixtures, but even the most inexpensive LED fixtures specifically made for aquariums will be adequate for successful and healthy plant growth in a community aquarium. LED lighting is best for 3 reasons:
Superior light penetration to as deep as 24 inches without special attention
The light spectrum of LED encourages plant growth even with the most common and inexpensive fixtures
The cost to operate most common LED lighting fixtures is less than 10% of the cost to operate the average incandescent lighting fixtures, and less than 30% of the cost to operate most fluorescent aquarium lighting fixtures.
