30 gallon reef tank set up.
 
I already have an odyssea t5ho light fixture 72 watts i believe. Would this light be sufficient enough to grow corals?? I plan on getting 120w led dimmables in the future.


List of things getting:
40 Ibs black Caribbean live sand.
20 Ibs base rock
10-15 Ibs live rock
Koralia 1050/550/425
Aquaclear 110/50 filters

Live stock:
Royal gramma
Yellow watchman goby or pink watchman
Wrasse
Sexy shrimp/cleaner shrimp
Possible designer clown pair
Feather dusters
Various corals

I wouldn't bother with the filters, but that's just me. How about test kits (liquid) and a refractometer for salinity. Do you have ro-di? I think water is the most important ingredient...

Oh and to answer your question, the t5 will be fine for now, just research each coral before you buy. You could keep lps and softies with that light...

That's about all I want to keep. Yes I have a rodi unit and hydrometer for now. I'm not gonna do a sump so the filter are a plus
