Actually one of my "gurus" has the most gorgeous reef I've ever seen and "he" has 2 mandarins (after I taught him how to sexy up that refugium and splurge on pods
), and 2 blue chins "and" a few chroms. No coral or chrom problems. Blue chins tend be more "shy" honestly.
None the less, I've finally decided on a 90gal (Carey I will not rest till I find a Craigslist steal!!)
With my 55 sump/refuge, 20 gal
, softies, some zoos/polys, ricordias and clams,
The 2 mandarins
1 yellow tang
4 anthias 1male 3 female
5 Bengai cardinals (not much on load cause they barely move)
And 5-7 chroms, depending on the systems functionality
With my estimated water volume and turnover rate (30+ per gph
), it should be legit
P.s. Carey = amazing.
Carey, I noticed you posted about a tank with the par38s. Care to comment on their efficiency and led
tactics in general???
I can't seem to get much input, but for a 90gal which i think is 48" long?? Will 2 of those par38s, angled from one corner to opposite on both sides, and one of those newer 90wat disc (forgot brand and model name) LEDs that are "supposed" to be for "up to" 48" hanging directly point center be alright in your opinion???
How do you like those PARs?? Which bulb set did you get/use??
