Would this light support Zoas? I know I've seen some at the LFS I'll have to go and do a picture comparison to get which species but they are really pretty.

Also, you salty gurus which reef kit do you use?

That light would support quite a range of LPS & SPS... Never mind Zoa's..

Zoa's would probably thrive in an unlit basement.


As far as testing goes, Salifert, Red Sea and Hannah Checkers are the most popular.

That's great to hear. I've heard from a trust LFS employee(who has a SW tank and a frag tank) that SPS can be a challenge.

SPS aren't that hard. There are some hard ones to keep, but many aren't that challenging.

I think I'll start with LPS and go from there. I really like the Duncan's I need to pay a visit to the LFS and try to get a coral stock list for reference.

Hi 😊
Following along! I find SW really interesting but haven't been brave enough to take the plunge!
