PC's good enough??

i was wondering what kind of corals I could have with 130w PC's in my 29 gal? I'm a beginner so if you have any suggestions on the best kind to get that would be awesome! TIA

You should be OK on just about any of them. That`s over 4 watts per gallon. But someone said that watts per gallon is old school so maybe there`s a new formula out there

Yea, i agree with those guys. 130W is good enuf for 29G to keep any corals and anemones. One thing is i don't think u'll be able to keep clams

i went with the jbj's. They are awesome! Just make sure you buy the stand with it because I didn't and ended up bumping my lights into my tank twice before i finally got the stands. They are well worth the money though! HTH

Cool, I like the clams, but don't they need a little more room than a 29 gal?
