Yeah, I started with the stock PC
's in the hood on my BioCube, then wanted to add more light. So instead of just ditching the hood, and going with some MH
, I got a custom upgrade for the hood that doubled my PC
Now I wanted to get a Clam and some SPS
corals, so I had to ditch the hood and go with a MH
I should have done that from the start and saved the $$ form the custom PC
upgrade, but live and learn.
So, the point is... IMHO
. Get the best, highest lighting you can afford now. Because, you will most probably change your mind later and wind up spending more $$.
