150 MH is it to much for a 10G
 
hi all

i was wondering if i could put a 150watt MH on my 10G tank or would it be to much?
the tank is a jebo R338 with a DIY hood. it is around15' high and 15' in length and 10' in width.

You should be fine. I've seen 150W halides on 2 gallon tanks.

Your biggest issues are heat and evaporation. You are going to need fans, maybe a chiller, and then top-offs like twice a day.
