Lighting Question - EBay Related

I was wondering how this would work on top of a 29 Gal Reef? I have a regular old light strip right now that came with the aquarium. I know it's not enough with it's 20W for a reef. Would this one from EBay be ok?

I have a 4" DSB and was just wondering if this would put out enough for a good reef?

THANKS!

I think that would be great lighting for you! You could def. keep softies, and maybe a few more.

Thanks. Would that be enough for a few harder corals and maybe an anemone?

I would stay with mostly softies, and the anemone really depends more on how mature your tank is. How long has the tank been running.

The tank has been up with someone else for a few years...but since I have had it, it has been running at my house for 3-4 months. I wasn't planning on getting one anytime soon. I still need a bit more live rock before I can to too much more!

JEBO stuff is marginal at best. If you wan t nicer PCS i would stick with Coralife. Should a problem arise Coralife is quick in honoring there warranty.

With a light like that you could keep anything except clams and SPS; and no yellow leathers. Any othere softy, polyps, LPS would be fine.
