How long should I turn on the Easy Plant LED light for my planted tank?
For a newly planted aquarium, the plants will take some time to adjust to their new surroundings. Therefore, we recommend scheduling the light for less time duration at first for a total 6–8 hours a day using an electrical outlet timer like the Kasa Wi-Fi timer. Also, start with lower light intensity around 20–40% brightness (level 2—3) and gradually increase the intensity if there is no algae growth. If a significant algae bloom happens, then lower the brightness again. See the product page for more details.
