My 125 FOWLR
is about to go reef. First I'm upgrading my sump and skimmer then I need to upgrade my lighting. I'm looking at buying one of the following:
6' DLX 3MH & 4-55W EURO COMPACT FL
6' deluxe hood with 3-250 watt 10k metal halide bulbs & 4-55 watt actinic PC
Compact Fluorescent bulbs, 2 - 4" fans, two switches for the metal halides and one switch for the compact fluorescents. The PC
's appear to be 24" and mounted end-to-end, alternating sides, front and back.
6' DLX 3MH & 2 PC
COMPACT FL 2-96W
6' deluxe hood with 3-250 watt 10k metal halide bulbs & 2 - 96W actinic PC
Compact Fluorescent bulbs. The PC
's appear to be 36" and are mounted end-to-end.
6' PROTOSTAR 250 WATT 10,000K HQI & 4 PC
COMPACT FL 4-96W
Aquaspacelight 3 - 250 watt HQI Metal Halide with 4 - 24 watt Osram true 03
actinic power compact.
I should know tomorrow afternoon how soon I'll be able to buy the new lights (possible sign-on bonus
I like to look of the Aquaspacelight but is has a total of only 96w actinic.
