Help me pick new lighting =)
Hey guys just asking some questions about lighting. Here is the setup I have now, I know nothing about it but here are the pics:
I would like to get something like Roger has, the moonlight thing. I plan on adding coral soon but I need better lighting. Would improve lighting do anything with the fish or change anything I should worry about? Would having a corner tank change any options that I have? thanks guys
For an odd shaped tank like that a would think a metal halide pendent would be your best bet. What sized tank is that?
55g I guess I will get a clip on one?
a new light wont do anything to your fish. however you will want to introduce the new light slowly, that way your tank wont be overrun with algea. And your corals will need to get used to it too.
So if I did get a new light I would just turn it on for short periods at a time? Also I am guessing the lights clip on the side of the tank. Would the new lights melt the plastic? Also I am guessing I would have to add water more regularly? 1 more quick question what is lunar light? thanks again guys
lunar light is a moon light, there on after the main tank light goes off. There good if you want to see the nocturnal behavior of your fish and it also relieves stress on your fish.
So If I got a clip on set would I have to take the glass cover off the top of the tank? I am just worried I would have to add water everyday. :(
Would this light be a big enough upgrade to get better coral in my tank? I think I can even clip the light on the side even though my tank is a corner one. What do you guys think?
I talked to a guy from hellolights.com. He told me that with my tank that this fixture would work with the 20k xde. What do you guys think?
