Hello, I have decided to start a sw
/reef tank. I have a 125 g tank and I have visited a LFS
to get some advice. I have known the people that own this LFS
for years and pretty much trust the advice. They will however try to get you to buy some extra products here and there. My question is he had told me that for a 125g tank I need this light setup for about $1400.00 that he can get for me in about a week. I have been looking around on the net and found a nice light setup for about $400.00. Would this be enough light for my tank? 72" 785w metal halide system,
3x175w double ended HQI 20000k
4x65w compact flo. actinic blue
12 moon lights.
I would like to keep a variety of things such as:
coral, clams, mushrooms, LR
, and of course a few fish.
Any help would be appreciated.
