I have a long 45 gallon. I think it is 42"Lx18"Hx12D. No other filtration just the two bio wheels and a power head to move some water around. I just got my water tested today and my water quality was perfect. I do 25% water changes every two weeks and change the charcoal pad at the same time. I originally bought the tank as a fish only setup and have been getting more and more into reef tanks. I will someday be getting a larger tank for a reef setup. I am not afraid of more work. is the sun polyp an option? Thanks, didn't mean to stir you guys up at all.

Can you better describe your tank to include: inhabitants, LR, type of lighting(you may want to update the My Info section so it is on file). The tank you describe has potential based on dimensions. Will need to look at different filtration and adding a skimmer which may or may not be possible if you keep the eclipse hood. The eclipse system can work well for a lightly stocked FOWLR system.

Not sure on the sun polyps as I have never kept them.

As Brenden said NO lights are not going to cut it with corals. Also most very low light corals can be moderate to difficult to keep due to having to be fed since they do not use light.

If you upgraded to 260W pc like the 48" CORALIFE PC 2-65W ACTINIC / 2-65W 10,000K or the Current USA 48" 260W lights for example you would have enough for low to moderate light corals.

Also I would wait until your tank is 6+ months and stable before adding corals IMO.

Just to clarify tank size isn’t the issue, it’s the type of lighting you have. As for filtration upgrades a quality skimmer and keeping your canister clean is all that’s needed to maintain your no3 below 10 ppm.
