I am going to retro my canopy over to a MH
atenic lighting system from a VHO
only system. My tank measures 48x20x20 and I have a 20 gallon wet/dry with a protein skimmer. I have 100lbs of LR
and am going to add 50 more lbs after the lighting change. Livestock is as follows until the upgrades are completed. 3 Damsels, 1 Percula, 1 cleaner shrimp, 5 turbo snails, 10 blue leg hermet crabs, 1 branch frog spawn coral and 1 flower pot coral (goniropora). All are healthy and like the current lighting.
I want to get some more light dependant creatures and that is why I want to upgrade.
recommends 2x400 MH
. That sounds extreme to me. What do you all think? I was thinking that 2x250 sounds more inline for my setup.
Any advice is welcomed. Thanks in advance,
