lighting for tank

I am trying to figure out if I need to sell my current lighting or just add another fixture to my tank. I want to add coral (start with beginner type corals) but I have 2 65w compact flu and 2 65w acitinic, also lunar lights. What should I?

In my opinion, you'll be fine with the low/low-medium light corals such as soft corals, mushrooms, zoos, and LPS with your current lighting.

I agree. You have the same wpg that I had when I only had one set of VHO`s. You`ll be able to have most soft corals or LPS corals. If you want to go SPS or clams then you`ll need to add another set.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
