I have close to 40 in my 75! This does not count duplicates. I have zoos I have fragged that are laying in different places. I plumbed in my 20L for a frag tank yesterday I feel my tank is a bit crowded but it looks good. I will have to do something because everything is growing

Lighting was in my signature 2x250 CV 14k MH with T5 suppliments. I use a Berlin Classic with a Mag7 as my skimmer. Not the best but does the job.

How much light is required for the LPSs and SPSs? Someone told me they require about 400 watt MHs

all depends on gallons and how deep the tank is...
At least 5 to 6 watts per gallon...

I could not imagine 400 watt MH on a 75 gal. A 2x250 for a 75-90 gal seems to be the norm. I plan to get a clam in the future and should have plenty of light for it. My SPS are near the top but my LPS are on the substrate or just above.

Watts is tuff to account for with MH's. I have 500 watts of MH total
