I take back the questions. I went and got the coralife 30" as I said. I have 2 50/50s in it and the big als dude said its more than enough and that I may have to raise the light for some corals. So we bring it home and hubby sets it up (so excited that he's excited now) and I couldn't beieve what we found in there! The difference between the daylight, lamp light and even flash light compared to those puppies is amazing! I already have a lot of algae growth. I started with all lr
so its helped. I have hair algae, coraline, sponges, the four scarlet hermits we put in there are just shoving it in their little mouths as fast as the can. I'm uber excited to get the rest of the cuc in there! We sat in front of the tank and watched everything for over an hour.
