Just starting to build a new 46 gallon tank that I way to house only a nem and clowns. Currently looking at a aquatic life t5ho dual bulb 79 watts. Can this be used as proper lighting or do I need more bulbs? I know nothing about t5 specs as I run two AI Vegas on my 75 gallon reef currently. Just don't want to have to pay a small fortune again for a second tank.
You're going to need a much stronger light than that one. If you had your heart set on t5ho then you will probably need 2 of those fixtures over your tank. I have 1 over my 55g fresh tank and it can't support anything more than medium light plants.
Well I'm getting the fixture from a buddy and I'm getting it for 40 bucks. So I'm not paying full retail. I only bought the one because he thought he had someone else buying the other but it fell through. He has given up on reefing because he thinks its to much work.
