24 gallon, JBJ tank. Good??
What do you guys think about the jbj 24 gallon tank? I found one for sale on craigslist for $150. It has 2 power compacts and 2 lunar lights. Is the lighting on this tank sufficient for corals such as leathers, plate corals, colt, ricordea mushrooms, polyps, and torch corals and other softies?

The Nano Cube is a pretty good tank overall. But, take in mind you will only have about 20 gallons of water because of the false-wall and built in filter.

The lights should be 36W each, correct? That would bring you up to about 3WPG. That can work. It should be suitable for most softies, like you mentioned (rics, zoas, shrooms, polyps, etc). Plus, it should be a bit brighter beause of the reflectors.

Ya, I'm not sure about the lights. I just emailed him. It's either this or a 20L, so the false wall is fine. How about the filtration on the tank, is it ok? Or should I just keep with my plan of a 20L with an aquaclear 110 for filtration, along with LR?
