i plan to get a lighting upgrade at the beginning of the year with my tax return money, but i would like to do some research now while i can.
i want to get an anenome, and i have been told that i should try to get 6 wpg
for my tank. my tank is 40 gallons, so i would need about 260 watts total. all the lighting setups that i have seen that are close to that wattage are either a 2x96 watt setup, or something way bigger which will cost a whole lot more money.
my question is....would the 2x96 watt fixture be enough for an anenome or will i have to fork out a whole bunch of extra money for bigger lighting?
if there is a website that anybody knows of that will ship to an APO box with some lighting that would work for my tank to let an anenome survive, please share.
my tank is 36 in. long, which seems to give me trouble too. i keep finding lighting fixture with the right amount of watts for my tank, but they're 48 in. long.
