Hello everyone. First time posting here. I have a 55 gallon fish only salt water tank that has been running for about 3 years. I want to make it a reef tank. I have a local guy that can sell me LS
and I've already ordered 60 lbs of base rock from Hirocks. I'm figuring about 40 lbs of LR
to go with this. Does that sound good?
My next question is lighting. The LFS
recommended I go with a Coralife Aqualite that has 2-65W Actinic and 2-65W 10000K flourescent bulbs. Someone else told me that I may not be able to keep all corals with this light and suggested a MH
. I've found one that has 2 -250watt 10K Metal Halide bulbs 2-96 watt actinic PC
Compact Fluorescent bulbs, 2 - 4" fans. Is this sufficient for any type of coral? Is it too much for a 55?
I'm sure I'll have alot more questions but that's all for now.
