I would have thought 150w mh over your 20g would be more than enough for the most high demanding corals and creatures?! This thread is really knocking my knowledge!

I have mine mounted about a foot above the top water line. While I feel it's adequate I also feel I could use more light. I am hoping for a mini maxi anemone some time in the future and I don;t believe it would be enough light.

Thats just my opinion and experience though. I may be wrong. My corals have perked up quite a bit after adding the mh instead of two PAR38 LED's bulbs but I still feel it could be better.
But then again, who is ever happy 100% about their setup? Theres always something you want to be better. LOL

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I'm using that light only for the refugium in the back.. I've got stock lighting on my biocube..
