Haven't bought the tank yet and this is just so I have an idea what I can get. Obviously the bigger the tank, the more costly the lights (I understand that lights are the most expensive thing here).
So what light would you use for a 6 gallon?
If I decide to go bigger, I might get a 15 gallon so what would you use in that case?
I know that there are good LEDs out there but they cost a fortune! £300 for lights! This is exactly why I said I don't want any "hard to keep corals" (forgot what they're called). This will be my first ever SW
so I'm just trying to plan everything so that even if I don't set it up now( which I won't since I can't get my hands on RODI
water), I will know exactly what to get and how much to spend when the time comes.
I do appreciate everyone's help by the way.
