I've got a 55G with almost 70lbs of live rock and I'm stocked with a pair of clowns, royal gramma and a yellow tang. Tank was started in Jan of this year. I've got three powerheads, sand bottom and still run a Emperor with carbon or Chemi Pure. Now I'm ready to step up from NO
lights. Question is, should I buy a PC
like the Coralife and buy those legs and go with a glass top or should I go the plastic egg crate route with the Coralife sitting on legs.
My budget is around $ 300 and I have wondered if a 2 X 65 Satellite might be good enough. They don't have legs however nor fans and I'm inclined to think I'll regret it as the idea of being able to lift the Coralife back on its legs and feed really interests me.
What to do, what to do.
By the way, I haven't had much luck taking pics of my tank with my crappy 2mb digital but I've got a huge Electric blue legged crab which is almost as much fun as my Oc. clowns. He has taken a few turbo snails out for their shells but I still love him. At least he doesn't attack my fish like those crabs did I got with my live rock. Oh yeah, I've still got some good color on my live rock but I should say my interest is with more brilliant lighting of my tank and preservation of my coralline algae. Some say NO
lights drive more purple than PCs but I'm ready to light my tank more brilliantly with PCs so my fish will have that showroom color.
