Lighting in a new set-up #1
I'm building a 200 litre marine tank, have all the kit except sufficient lighting. The tank came with a single Interpet tube, but should I invest in a few more to fit in the hood of the tank, and if so how do I calculate if I should go for 39 Watt, or less, and how many? It is a corner cabinet with a deep 3 sided tank mounted on it. I intend to transfer the live rock and fish from an existing 48 lt interpet river-reef set up and then build it up from there.

Re: Lighting in a new set-up #2
hi there it depends on what your current tank has stock wise and what you intend on adding fish, corals etc.
