I am in the process of researching the final deployment of my 45G hex tank. I am going to be doing a FOWLR
using a "package" consisting of Tampa Bay LR
. After doing much research, it seems that I can expect quite a variety of life in this particular LR
and was wondering what the best lighting would be for my situation. I have no desire to get into corals heavily in the beginning but do want to provide adequate lighting for the various types of sealife I can expect to come with the Tampa Bay LR
. My tank is 12-1/2" on a side, 6 six sides total, and 23-1/2" in height. The light that came with the tank is a 20" strip light with a single 18" flourescent tube included. This appears to be the largest light fixture that will fit across the top of the tank and not hang off the sides. I have a feeling this is going to be inadequate and would appreciate any suggestions and/or comments. Thanks in advance for your help and look forward to some positive feedback.
