what size tank for my light?
I have a currently unused dual 24" T5HO fixture stored away in a closet since it was too much light for my planted 20 gal tall. With appropriate bulbs (10000K and actinic?), what would be the biggest tank I could match with this fixture for a basic beginner's marine tank?
I guess this all depends on if yoiu plan of having corals or just fish. Corals would not do well in that 20" deep tank with those T-5's. But would be ok in the 18" or less depth. The tank width is ok with what you've chosen for that. Reasoning, the fixture you have only has 2 lamps, correct?
