lighting is decent enough for them. The prior tank owner had corals with these lights. Temp, PH, salinity etc are all right for it.
I didn't catch it, what kinda wattage do you have over the tank? Honestly if it's PC
lighting it's going to be pretty tought to keep a RBTA happy. you'd be better off with MH
if you want a nem. T5 COULD work but you'd need some serious wattage. PC
lights are known to have lower PAR/watt than the T5, MH
, & LEDs so take that into consideration.
