So, my compact flourescent blew up today. Now, I'd been planning on doing metal halides in the future, but it looks like it's going to be sooner than later. The only problem is I don't know what I need. Right now I just have LR
and a couple of soft corals and mushrooms. I plan on expanding in the future. So, what would you suggest? It's a 50 gallon, 36x18. Pendant or retrofit? I don't have a canopy for it, so would I not want to do retrofit? Will the Pendant bulbs provide all the lighting I need?
Thanks, any and all help is appreciated.
