It was a freebie that I got when I made an order. It worked for me but not something I would go out and buy. Was more of a suggestion that there are products available.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

It seems to me that bulbs doo make a diff. I have only had ATI and I hear people say there corals ect. do better with ATI bulbs. My tank has coralline but only in the bottom of my rocks. Maybe I just have to way a bit more time.

Its cool you got a freebie. But I still think My lights as slowing/increasing the growth of my coralline. It seems to thrive under the rocks. And I think the brightness slowing down the coralline that grows on top.

i dont know how big your tank is, but the light sounds fine.
I just got two tests, one for ammonia and one for calcium. I got the ammonia cause I need it and one for calcium. My ammonia is at 0.5 but it is because I moved some rocks days back. And calcium is at 420. I will get more test as I get more spareable money.
