whats the wattage? IMO you could probably get away with low-moderate light Lps if there up high enough and you target feed.

Given the tank is a standard 29, as it appears to be, then the lighting would be 2 24" 65W bulbs, as PC bulbs do not come in a 30" size.

I know this is a pointless measurement but he's got about 4 watts per gallon. Acording to LA he's good for medium light corals.

You're right; it is.

LA has some good advice, some not so good. Just sayin.

Sounds good enough, considering we were pretty much ONLY looking at low lights, think were good? if we ever wanted some higher light corals, we could just add another smaller fixture like severilum mama said, right?

But would we would still be good for low lights- semi moderates?

Correct, but if you want medium light corals they'll need to be at the top
