29 gall with 70 watt MH?
hey guys im back from a short break of this forum because i found a washington local fish forum, anyways you guys are better at salt, all they do is cichlids
so im thinking of upgrading this summer because i got a lot of time for working and gaining money.
what is the biggest tank i can have sps & lps with a 70 watt metal halide? i really dont want to spend a fortune on lighting because that stuff is expensive! i got a 29 gallon that is empty because i have finished transfering my FW fish. would this work? also, im thinking about an overflow with a refuge and the HOB skimmer in there. the stand definatly has enough room for maybe a 20 long and definatly a 10 gallon. there is a glass shop near me that will cut holes $15 each, so i was thinking just one hole for intake and jsut have the exaust come over the tank, although i might just go with the second hole for asthetics, ill get to that when i get there lol. anways, my question really is, can i have a 70 watt MH over a 29 gallon and have nice corals?
