lighting

I am going to start a 33 gallon saltwater tank and am very confused by what type of lighting that I need. all I want to put in the tank are fish, live roc, and mabe some easy to care for corals. how much lighting am I going to need.


Thanks

I would go with PC lights. 33's (assuming long) are 48x12x13 approx. If you want fairly high lights and the cool new moon lite, check out this one:

The 4x65W fixture would almost give you 8 Watts/Gallon.

BTW, it's about $240.00 on www.bigalsonline.com

From what I understand from my thread is that
if it is a fish only tank, your normal NO lighting is fine.
