Welcome to AA and glad you found us here :) before adding corals you will want to get a test kit for alkalinity calcium and magnesium which you will get the proper levels using a reef salt mix like reef crystals. Also how many bulbs is your T5? That will dictate the light level of corals that will be good for your tank.

It's just the t5 day night light that's built into hood, both white an blue lights are on together that why I bought the blue led's

1 white tube 1 blue tube and on the LEDs there is 72 bulbs..

The LEDs more then likely won't count for much but 2 bulbs will be good for softies like mushrooms zoas and xenias

Mrc8858 10-20-2012 09:04 AM

A decent rule of thumb I like to follow is 2 bulbs for softies 4 for lps and 6+ for sps. Given the tank depth will effect that but most of the time that'll work out.

Ok thanks there the type we were thinking about adding. How long before adding them as this is a new set up..
