    Default Lighting For 20G Tall

    I have a 20 gallon tall that I am looking at light fixtures for and quite simply, its giving me a headache. I would like to be able to keep some of the easier corals, zoos, etc.. so what exactly do I need?? I looked at a HO T5. Its a double light fixture. Im assuming it will be fine for what Im doing.. yes.. no??

    I'd get a 4x24w T5HO fishneedit light. For $100, it's a great price. It should provide ample lighting for almost all coral.
