190 liters or gallons? If liters then your tank is way too small for any tang.

You are going to need a lot more light than those LED strips over your tank. They are 12 watts a piece. You need like 20 of them or more to light the entire tank.

Even a roughly 50 gallon tank will need more light than that if you plan on keeping a mixed reef.

I've upgraded one aquaray 500 to an aquaray 600 and can see the difference.
I plan on fitting two more aquaray 600 strips after Christmas,
I have recently upgraded my setup so that is why I don't yet have adequate lighting.

For the price of those lights you could get a better fixture.

It seems they need an open hood, ie hanging LEDs.
I prefer a closed hood myself. Just personnel preference,
Thanks for the suggestion though.
