6 lamp T5HO, and you can house any anemone and coral you want, make sure you have individual lamp reflectors though

They go behind the bulb and reflect the light down and out of the hood...

Ok cool I know exactly what your talking about. Would I be able to do a clam with that set up? I know I need to feed them certain foods and stuff but I've never been sure about what kind of light I would need.

as low as possible, and with stable bacteria colonies.

you want to keep ammonia nitrite and phosphates at 0ppm and nitrates at about 5ppm

Clams also need calcium, most people dont need to add any as its in your salt mix. Some tanks with a high demand for calc need to supplement.

this is true also, most SPS do require alot of calcium and trace elements, but you can do regular waterchanges or if that doesn't work there are dosing pumps
