The age old question I guess but I'm trying to figure out what will be best for lighting on my 110 gal
My tank is 5' long by 18 inch wide by 24inch tall.
Right now I have a Fluval Marine and Reef LED
. It says it's 46w with 120 degree light dispersion. All in all I like this light but it's not enough to really make my corals thrive. I've already added 2 old aquarium lamps with only actinic bulbs just for color.
My thought is that I'd like to add 2 Current USA Orbit Marine 36"-48" lighting systems that I'll overlap in the center of my tank in addition to the Fluval LED
. I like the light just from what I've read in terms of features. A huge problem I feel that I have is my tank has a huge glass bracing down the center that has horrible stains I can't get off and I feel like I'm losing a ton of light.
My other issue for lighting is budget. My wife doesn't want to hear about how I have to spend money on expensive lights so I figure I'd buy one now and one later on.
Anyone's thoughts on if this will help my coral growth and color? Or are there any better systems out there in the same price range? I really want to do the split lighting because I think it'll most benefit me and I like the light controlling features.
