I currently running a 150 watt coralife MH
with two 96 watt CF
acintics over my 46 gal
reef tank. However due to the center support beam there is a dark shadow in the center of the tank, see gallery, I would like to get rid of this shadow by upgrading and adding a second MH
. In the process I would bulid my own DIY
susspended canopy so I can use any configuration I like I was thinking of using 2X 175 MH
retrofits from hellolights.com with one 10K and one 20K bulb. I may add a 96 watt acintic CF
to give a dusk/ dawn cycle.
Would It look weird with two differnt kelvin ratings for the MH
or would they just blend together?
Will adding say 250 watt MH
be to much light for my tank as opposed to the 175's ?
Will this upgrade make the colors in my SPS
coral brighter since they darkened up somewhat from the LFS
Sorry for the long post but if im going to spend the money I want to have it right the first time.
