I don't know if my lighting that i have is good enough for my tank... I have a 32in long and 17ish-in high... The light that I have gotten is a 130 watt that is 2-65 watt 50/50 straight pin compact fluorescent. Will this be fine? I don't want anything to die on me...
you need about 5 watts per gal of water..so unless you tank is a 26 gal tank or less you will need more light. if you plan on keeping SPS you'll need even more then 5 watts ..closer to 7 or 8 watts per gal
I've moved your thread to the Saltwater Aquarium Lighting section of the forum.
