I read through the other threads and really need to be specific here.
I am starting this tank (55gal)and the cost is rising daily. I would like to go with the Orbit 48" fixture but just can not afford it now. Can I just use a 48" no flourescaent fixtur and switch the ballasts seperately? I would put 2 actinic bulbs on 1 ballast and 2 other bulbs(maybe 10000k ?) on the remaining ballast.
Do you think this will be enough lighting for now. I am planning on fish, lr
, some inverts and maybe some low light corals at a later date.
I am really stuck on this opic and have no idea how to proceed.
