I am in the same boat for my 4ft 75 gal
. I am looking at a 2x250 MH
with something else for actnic.
I have a line on a Coralvue retro kit. What are the thoughts on these? I know Captive Reefs sells them. Electronic ballast and decent price seem very nice.
Reef or others: You say to have the MH
about 7-12 inches off the top of the tank. How do most accomplish this with a canopy? Can you do a pendent setup and still run actnic or are you running a blueish MH
I had planned on using a 1x8 as the frame for my new canopy but that would leave the MH
probably around 5-6" off the top of the tank. I guess the water level is a bit lower but I don't know if that will be enough.
Sorry for the threadjack but going MH
seems to have other consderations so hopefully this might help
