I have no idea.

But my GSPs are fantastic. They are extremely hardy. They have still not attached to the rock they are on, since the emerald crab like to go underneath it, and they keep falling off. So they are pretty hardy.

Mushrooms are awesome too. I have a small green ricordia and I love it. They grow really well under low lights. Until you figure out the lighting situation, i would go with mushrooms

Just tried finding a 20watt bulb to see what you have got going on. Do you have just one bulb or two?
Or is is it like a double bulb connected together?

Hmm that does limit you to very few corals. You can get mushrooms and maybe some zooas. Not sure about leathers though. Maybe. Any way to upgrade the top and lights or is it a weird shaped tank?

That would be low light at best. T8's are nt known for being the brightest bulbs out there. i can't even find other options as far as spectrum as I can't find a 20watt bulb anywhere.

Finally found your bulbs. But they only come in a 6700k spectrum which is ideal for plant and algae growth. I will keep looking and see if they make a marine bulb. It says it's for a sun glo fixture.
