Well life once again is hindering progress on getting my equipment and I had to replace the dryer so I lost some funds for my lighting. I was looking at getting two 24" MH/T5 lights for $200. But now due to funds im looking at a single 48" t5 set up that has 4x 54w T5 bulbs, two 12000k and two actinic bulbs. Will this be enough light to start with some beginner softies and fish? Should i buy one 24" MH/t5 combo for now and just light half of the tank until I can afford the 2nd
Ok so I havent been doing anything with my salt water build. Life got in the way and with a possible move decided i didnt want to get a tank up to just tear it down. Now the move has been put off for a few years so I want to get it up and running.
Still have to finish sump, build/fix the overflow box, create my live rock and buy good lights.
I am looking at doing fish and some soft corals to start.
I was originally looking at an Odyssea T5 216 watt light
