I'm in the process of setting up my first marine tank at the moment. I used to keep freshwater for many years and then gave up when I left America. I've decided that I want to get back into it but with marines instead.
But ... things have changed since I last looked at these things!
My first tank will be a FOWLR
but I would hope to morph it into a reef once I get back into the habit. All my fish choices will be aimed towards reef, etc.
Could someone please explain the difference between the light types and fixtures that are now available? Or perhaps point me in the direction of a post or article that explains these? Perferably with simple words?
There is the Juwel Hi-Lite system that refers to T8 and T5, then the metal halides, etc, moon bulbs, etc.
I have a Juwel Vision 450 tank (so about 105 US Gallons).
thanks in advance
