Yeah. Scratch out the catalina. They are cold water gobies and will most likely die when kept in warm water reef environments for too long. I dont want none of that -__-
Now im getting some discrepancy between sources on the yellow watchman goby. Some say a min of 30G and a min of 10G. Can any experts here verify which is correct? I fear its the 30G lol.
So.. i found this for the lighting. And i think im going with a 10G and i'm going to be doing a drop-off design.
Here's the lighting: Current USA 24" Nova Extreme T-5 Fixture 2x24W 10K/460NM, (1124) - AquaCave
And here if more information on the drop-off concept for anyone who wants to take a look at it:
MEW - Rimless NPS Drop-off 10G - Nano-Reef.com Forums
However, will this lighting be enough for zoos, mushrooms, birdsnest, and a few other softies? I would think so since the tank isn't very tall.. 12".. but then again im really not an expert in the light department by any means. So i need some expert opinions. Thanks.
Also, it's cheap.. but we're talking about a 10G tank here lol.. Think this heater will be sufficient for heating a 10G reef tank?
