So I'm assuming since I have two strips I have about 70 watts.
Is that enough for at least soft and sps
? Maybe anemone?
The problem isnt how much wattage you have but the wattage of each diode which seems to be 1w which is not effective at penetrating very deep of water. This means only the top 1/2 to top 1/3 of your tank may be ok for sps
, clams, or nems.
Since nems move i dont recommend a nem since they can simply move to the bottom of the tank and die.
A clam may be hard to place high in the tank comfortably
That leaves sps
, and i would start by trying one or 2 in the top of the rockwork and see how it does. Even if they do ok chances are long term they will struggle.
If you want clams nems and sps
my advice would be to invest in a better fixture.
For great priced leds that will grow anything look into Kessils.
