Well, ok heres my issue: I dont think my PC
lighting is making the higher-light requirement coral/clam happy. The coral themselves seem to be ok, but the color seems to become more blah over time from when I got them home from the store. My old tank, which had the 1030w MH
system on it (running @ 7w/g) didnt seem to have that problem. I assume that was thanks to the MH
which has better light output than PC
, even at the same wattage.
My budget is $250 at the very most, preferably $200, so the two 70w vipers are out. Would I be better off at looking for a T5 HO
system that puts out like... 130-150ish watts? And if so, is there any hope of finding a system that isnt a fortune?
