Need help finding the right bulb...
I would like to start out by saying that I am a beginner to saltwater tanks and that I have had a 55 gallon freshwater tank for years but now I want to switch to a saltwater tank for my apartment at college.
I just bought a 28 gallon tank from a guy on craigslist and I have been doing a lot of research on saltwater tanks but I am confused with trying to find the correct light bulb. The one light bulb that came with the tank is a 24"/ 610 mm size. How many bulbs do I need? The hood can only fit one bulb, so I would need to get a new hood if I wanted two different bulbs but I really want to stay away from doing that.
I want to do a fish only tank with a mix of live rock and dry rock. Can someone with some good knowledge of this topic point me in the direction of the correct bulb that I need. I would like to stay under $50 with the bulb. A link to purchase the correct bulb would also be really helpful. Thanks!
