No, generally sps
is the most light demanding coral. So if your good for sps
generally your good for anything else also. Sps
requires the highest light intensity, the best water quality, and they are more finicky about water flow.
If its good enough for sps
it's good enough for anything else. But of course this is all generalities there are easier sps
coral and hard lps
and soft corals.
I'm saying you can more than likely grow whatever you want under that Kessil. Just so long as you put it under the light due to the odd tank shape. 2 of those would cover the whole tank and you could place any of the most light demanding corals anywhere in the tank you want, but one is fine I wouldnt buy two I would just place any sps
/clams under the light.
/clams - require the most light for example 100w + of led
, 250w +metal halide , 6 - 8 bulbs of t5ho(in a shallow aquarium)
- ( anemones would fall in this area of lighting) require moderate lighting : example : around 4 bulb t5ho, or 175w metal halide, or 60+ w of led
Soft corals like mushrooms and zoas - require less lighting than lps
, but I wouldn't say low lighting. Examples: 2-4 bulbs of t5ho, or 40+ watts of led
, or a 65w power compact.
