    Default Lighting Question on 75 gallon reef

    0 Not allowed!
    Hi everyone, another quick question. I'm upgrading my 60g into a 75g very soon, and I'm wondering if my lighting would be ok for very little SPS a lot of LPS and some softies ( Euphylia, brains, acans, plate montipora, blastos, zoas, cauliflower ). At the moment, I'm kind of breaking the wattage per gallon rule, but my lighting has a wide spectrum, being t5n HO and LEDs. It runs at 154 watts, and everyone who sees my tank claims its bright as hell. I can upgrade, just not right now. the t5 is the aquatic life 108w 2 bulb, and the LED is the Current USA Marine LED, which is 46w. They're both 48" long, same as my tank. Think its ok for the added 5" of horizontal depth ? Thanks in advance !

    You really have not provided enough information about your current lighting for me to make any recommendations, however, if it worked in the past it should still work. If the new tank is 5 inches tall than the old one, place your corals 5 inches closer to the top of the tank and you should be good

    That might be a lot cheaper upgrading your lighting
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
