Tell me why this is stupid
This reflector with bulbs in 70.00 dollars on line and is supposed to be 1000 watts. --
Flashpoint Cool Light 4 -16" Reflector with Four 55W Fluorescent Bulbs, 1000 Watt Equivalent
I have seen CFL bulbs with 5500k color and 45 watts. That would be 180 watts. I have seen 5500k lights as being appropriate for certain corals.
Why would this be stupid for a low cost solution for lighting a beginning reef tank?
