Looking through the couple of books I have I can't really find a proper answer to this?
My new setup (This weekend hopefully) is a tank (36x15x18) with no lid as I intend in a few months time (hopefully) to add some soft corals to it.
To recap I'm to start with LR
to cycle & then fish, then the coral... Now one book seems to indicate I need light for the LR
, the other says it doesn't?? Do I need lights?
I don't really want to waste money on tubes I'll use for a short period, I've been told already that I'd need a 4 tube T5 setup for my 3ft long tank for the coral (wifey says no MH
hanging from ceiling) But from what I can find in shops/internet, at 3ft I'm limited to a 2 tube option???
If I can get a 4 tuber can I change those tubes for something else whilst I have the FOWLR
? Or am I better off getting some cheap lid/tube unit until I'm ready for the T5's?
I'm UK based as well as far as options are concerned....
