Lighting for 40gl tall
So i have an acrylic 40gallon tall with an eclipse hood that holds 2 24'' t8 bulbs
What lighting recommendations do you guys have?
planning to have mostly fish and some corals but probably not so much but who knows also with a coupld of anemones.

will 2 coralife T8 10000k daylight bulbs work?

How tall is the tank?

And get rid of that hood. It wont be good for anything... even changing the bulbs won't due. T8 is for plants... T5 is for corals.

do you have any suggestions where i can get a better hood? or lighting fixture?
