I was told with my 29 gallon 30" t5 that i should be abkle to have most corals. I have alot of high rock too so I can put super light needing ones higher up.

I'm far from a light expert though, sorry.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I have: zooa's, hammer, LGP and an open brain. I also have an anenome. I've had no issues with him as far as light, in fact he is growing even bigger. Like I needed THAT lol

Watts isn't what matters, it's PAR. But that's a hard measurement to find people having.

Here's a 30" 4-bulb T5 for $110: 30in 4Bulbs fixtures

Me personally, yes. They make quality products. The only thing I'd be worried about is the bulbs, if possible replace them with ATI or Giessman lamps.

This is just IMO though

I believe it's basically a measure of usable light if I'm not mistaken. Pretty sure that's a dumbed down version though
