well at the current time i have two lighting options, A typical 48" aquarium Flourscent light with 2 single bulbs, 18" in length i believe. A regular shop light that gets hung from the cieling (i can attach it to the inside of my canopy) with two 48" bulbs. I know this isn't great lighting, but how far can this get me by and what type of bulbs can i buy, should i try and mount both fixtures in the canopy (one for daylight one my night, maybe) Will this be sufficient for the rock and sand curing process? will this be good enough for crabs snails and fish? Im assuming this will def not be good enough for corals, but what about if i have stragglers on my live rock i purchase. Thanks a lot for the feedback, i've looked on the forum and it seems like most of the talk about regular flourscent lighting has to do with freshwater. Thanks in advance.
