In my 55SW I currently have a 40W Triton (daylight) and a 40W Coralife actinic. That works out to only about 1.45 WPG
I just ordered a 4X65 custom PC
light from www.captivereefs.com
(2 daylight 2 actinic) so that will put me at 4.72 WPG
Anyway, the already-established coralline algae is doing just fine on my LR
now, but I am not seeing any on the glass and stuff. The tank is only maybe 4-5 months old but I was hoping I'd have corraline algae growth by now.
Just wondering if I am going to see an increase in coralline algae growth with the tripled lighting? From what I have researched it seems that not all coralline "needs" intense light, but.... overall what do you think?
Also I understand that ALK
are quite important for coralline, I use kalk
and reef essentials with all makeup water.
