Smile Welcome

I'm not a daily user of the forums, so when I logged in yesterday I noticed your new listing. Welcome!! I thought they might post a little biographical information so we'd know what kind of questions to throw your way, but here goes. Although I read almost anything that I can get my hands on that looks credible, a lot of my questions always seem to lead back to lighting. I'm in the process of setting up a basement coral farm-factory and in my efforts to set up an individual tank for the few species that I plan to cultivate, I'm looking for some information on just how intense the light for Nepthieds should be. Specifically Dendronepthya. The opinions I have so far range widely: high, low, actinic, daylight, VHO, MH, etc. I have a lux meter to measure the relative light exposure when placing corals, but a little more insight on what might be best for the Dendro would be helpful. Thanks!

Karburn,

I think you should probably direct your question to Mike Kirda. His lecture at the IMAC convention stressed his interest in examining the types and brands of lighting that are most suitable for coral growth. However, I must thank you for your post, it got rid of the big goose egg in the number of posts column accross from my name.
