That depends on the halide. 150 watters? I doubt it.

48
You should be fine for any clam.




Whether they have similar PAR ratings per inch isn't as important as their collective intensity. In other words, when you have a coral under a 24" lamp, it's getting light from all 24", as is the coral under the 48" lamp.

Mr X
What type of clam would recommend to someone who's thinking about getting one? Kinda like a "starter clam".

Just don't get a tiny one, they are harder to get started IMO.

I find squamosas to be pretty easy. Not as pretty as maximas though.
