I'm starting out a new 25G FOWLR
tank which will likely end up as a reef ( this is quite an addiction and I don't even own anything yet!)
My question is on how much light I need for the 2 setups. For the FOWLR
I've read a bunch of times that the basic NO
lighting will do but I want to make sure that all the macro algae etc on the lr
survives...will this happen or will I need more light to at least keep the full life on the rock? No sense paying to import lr
.com rock to Canada only to have most of the cool stuff die off...
So I definitely forsee wanting to add some corals in the future. How much lighting is required for most corals. I don't know too too much about the different corals yet so I can't say which ones I want yet but in general how much is enough?
What I was thinking of doing is getting a 2x55w PC
from ahsupply or other online store and only running the 1 tube for the FOWLR
and then add the 2nd tube when I want to add corals?
Does that sound reasonable?
