I have changed my plans a bit for a reef tank, mainly because my lfs
hasn't been able to get the 50g in that I want. Also I know I'll be moving within the next year and figure a smaller tank without a sump is probably easier to move.
Anywho...I'm planning on a 29g reef tank and I need some lighting suggestions. I would like to be able to atleast have some soft corals, LPS
, and polyps...with maybe some SPS
in the future. So I'd like for my lighting to be good for all and not have to upgrade for SPS
should I decide I'm ready for those.
I thought about a 4x24w T5HO fixture, but that is only about 3wpg so I'm wondering if thats enough. Another option I've considered is metal halide. But having never used it, I'm not sure what wattage to look into.
What would you suggest?
