I have a 55g Tank, See my info for what my setup is...
Basically, Right now I have just 2 Clown Fish, A few Shrimp, a few Crabs, a few nails, and a watchman goby....
I would Like to keep an Anenomy, Although Right now I am just trying to get all my fish.
Anyway, Back to my Question...
I am looking at buying a light on ebay It has 542 total watts which is:
Metal Halide: 2 x 175W HQI double ended
Fluorescent: 2 x 96W Power Compact
That's almost 10 watts per gal
, I am wondering if this is too much?
I hope to have 1 large fish in the tank, but I am not sure which fish right now. I was hoping for a Copper Banded Butterfly, but after 3 of them, the last Having not gotten sick at all, and still dieing... I am giving up on them. I Like a couple of the other butterflys, but all the others say they are not reef safe, so I am not sure what I will choose.
I don't know If bright light bothers fish or inverts at all? That is why I am asking before I buy this light.
