    Hi
    I don’t know where is the best place to post my question on this forum, so sorry if I’m wrong.
    I have an idea to remodel the light fixture (T5) for the new tank (it will be larger). At the moment I have light panel from 90 gal freshwater tank. I will keep corals (the main types, including leather, pipe and purple corals). Will it be enough for them to get the light from fluorescent lamps? How bright should be my bulbs?
    thanks

    What type of corals are you thinking about ? How hight/tall is the tank you are going to be using ?

    That info would really determine what type of lighting you would need
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Here is the dimension: 48″ x 18″ x 24″

    If I take 4 these bulbs https://www.mrosupply.com/lighting/b...lham-lighting/ will it be enough?
