Have a 40 gallon breeder with the following coral stock:
3 small orange montipora frags.
Small piece of Frogspawn with two heads.
Galaxea Coral about palm sized.
Several mushrooms of various types.
A frag of red/yellow zoas with about 20 heads.
A Kenya tree.
A few button polyps.
Small clam anchored in the same rock with the Kenya tree, some shrooms
, and a couple of button polyps.
My lighting is a 24 inch fixture with a 250 watt metal halide (14000k bulb) and two 24 watt/22 inch bulbs (antic 420 & 10000k bulbs). It also has 4 blue LEDs that I assume are for twilight.
The light is about 8-9 inches above the tank and around 10 inches above the water.
Is this too much light? I run the lights about 10-11 hours. Should I run the Mh
less hours during the day? I've notice my shrooms
are looking better after moving them out from directly under the light.
A few of my purple rocks have bleached out so I thought I would get input on lighting.
Thanks for the input.
