Hey, I'm having trouble deciding what light to get and wondering if yall can help! I have a tall 24" 24 gal. How many watts should I have? I want coral in there that are for beginners. I don't want to spend over $150 though. Thanks!
Hey NanoJimmy, :welcome to Nanotank.com! IF you are looking to keep beginning corals, I would go T-5 that way you have a little wiggle room, if you want to go beyond softies, but not all the way to SPS. What are all of the dimensions of your tank? If it is a cube you can get the 24" Nova extreme by Current USA, which runs $170 on premiumaquatic.com, but looking for a used one you could get it cheaper.
Its 24in tall tank. My friend works at the Georgia Aquarium and recommended a Current USA Nova Extreme 4x24w, but its kind of expensive and trying to look for a use one. What kind of corals do you think would be best and fairly easy to take care of? Thanks
