Squishy,

Why did you go with a 2x175 MH setup vs. something bigger? I have a line on a 2x250 MH setup and my 75 gal tank is all leathers and softies. I have always placed them at the top since I only have 3 watts per gal on a PC fixture. I guess a long photo acclimation period will be needed.

I went with the 2 175watts because at the time thats what I could afford and I had a 120gallon tank. I am looking at upgrading to 3 400watt m/h.


And yes...you will need a slow acclimation period

Thats cool. After reading the thread, I started worring about my softies once I pump up the light. My main goal is to promote growth not fry them up
