So to add to the thoughts on lighting. I started a 29 gap with 2-3 inches of sand, and 45 lbs of live rock. I dont plan on spending money for Sps
so I bought a light that would limit me to LPS
, shrinks, zoos, leathers, GSP. I bought it from a LFS
that services one of the largest aquariums in the northeast. By aquarium I mean a 30,000gallon reef tank. He swore by a coral life t5 with only 2 x 31 watt bulbs . 1 actnic, and 1 day 10000k. I have had the light for three months, and my zoos/GSP/xenia have gone wild.
Am I restricted to simply soft corals with this lighting?
Can I buy a LED
strip from home depot to increase the lighting, and if so what wattage should I strive for?
