View Full Version : lighting overkill for 75g?

10/20/2007, 01:27 AM
Planning a 75 gal - 48X 18 X 20. Thinking of getting the t5 tek 8X54. Is this overkill? Or should I get the 6X54? Planning on keeping clams, sps, lps, softies. Thanks.

I have the 6x54 tek light and I have sps, lps, softies and a clam on the sand bed. I have lost some zoas due to too much light, but everything else is doing great...

Its gunna be pretty tuff to keep any softies and some LPS with the 8 bulb fixture. So if you want a mixed reef, I suggest the 6 bulb.
