Plans for future tank, lighting question


Active Member
Ok so I'm planning on a 150g and was wondering which lighting I should use. I have a 150w HQI Sunpod Metal Hallide 20" 14k. I was wondering if I should get another one of those and use those to light my 150g or get a 60" IceCap VHO Fluorescent lighting system (560w total). If I did the VHO's I'd get a canopy which would also keep down evaporation, because I always have a fan on high in the room it's going in. I plan on keeping some SPS (maybe some montipora) and clams up top and some softies and gongorians down below.
