Hello everyone. I am in the process of setting up a 55-gal seaclear system II flatback hex. I want to have a reel aquarium with a couple of fish and alot of live rock and coral. This system has a wet/dry filtration and I plan to add a skimmer to it. The lighting system is of great concern. It has lighting for flouresents - (2) 15 wt bulbs. I purchased two expandalight kits to add another light to each. I have also purchased (2) 50/50 coralife and (2) marine glo lamps. My question is: will this lighting be sufficient? Before I go any further, I want to make sure I am buying the right lighting. One would think that a system with everything built in would be adequate, but I have heard alot of negative things about this type of system, being that alot of modifications must be made. PLEASE HELP!!!!
