Ai Prime On A Nano Question

    Hi,
    So yesterday I came home to a dark tank, and my E27 blew️. I'm going to order some more as they are good and did the job... But not sufficient for the long run.

    Im planning to get a red sea reefer 250 in the future and I was going to run 2 Ai primes on it, if I got one now would it work on my nano tank? The tank is 33cm² as it's footprint and is lps dominant (a few zoas and shrooms) I plan to grow sps though.

    So I'm just worried that it would be too powerful in my nano? And can I ajust the intensity at all?

    Thanks,
    Ethan

    Do it Ethan!:D

    In reality, I know nothing about AI settings but I've seen them over pico tanks. @Lchi87 runs her beautiful 10g under one so she could help with settings... Just not today because she's going to Reef a Palooza today! Yay!!!

    Hi,

    I will get one when I can... I was asking grant about his and there was a misunderstanding on my part... I thought he said they were £80 but they are more like £190‍♂️‍♂️, so I'll have to wait a few years

    Do you have any other recommendations for a sub £/$100 light?

    The prime will be great for your tank and has growing room too! @grantm91 has one over his 32 cube. :) Definitely get one when you can!!
