Hard to say exactly- I would go w/ 5-8 sheets. Remove one layer every 7-12 days depending on how things look. Slower is definitely better in this case.

Ok the lights come in today. I am going to mount them in the canopy and use the screen. if they seem to be too close to the water and produce to much heat, I am going to extend the canopy from bottom up to make it taller...

I'll let you all know!

Ok the lights are in and looking AWESOME!!! I never knew the difference MH's could make. My tank feels new again...

I am going to acclimate everything by reducing the number of hours the lights are on per day and gradually increasing them. I moved all the sensitive corals to the bottom area of the tank. I turned them on for a little while last night and all the corals opened up great....

Instead of mounting to the canopy top, I used some 1 x 1's to make a skelaton so to speak and mounted them to that. It sits perfect in the tank.

Thanks for all the help! I'll post pics later.
