Lighting

I am currently using a Fluval Marine and Reef led light on my 55 tank and have found out this is not enough for my corals. The question I have is if I add the Orbit led with the Fluval will both be enough or too much? I appreciate any feed back.

How big a tank, and what are you keeping? I used one on one side of a tank for things with low light requirements, with a Hydra on the other till I could afford the other two hydras, worked fine, but I had nothing with good lighting requirements under that end till I had brighter light

If the only thing lacking enough light is the birds nest, that should be fine, everything else looks good. I'd get a few more opinions, but I think you'll be okay

I reserve comment on the tao lights, I know many swear by them, and agree they put out great amounts of light, but I had a very poor experience with them, and their service was terrible. I'll gladly spend more to get lights from a American owned company

The reef breeders are basically the same as the Taos but I believe are American made.
