Lighting large tank



That is a good size tank.
You may consider decreasing the depth, it will be hard to plant and
maintain.
Otherwise you might need to invest in a snorkle and mask.  ;)
For lighting the most econimal way would be halides.
The cheapest in the long run would be 250watts or 400watts with 65K
bulbs.
The 400watts will put you just over the mythical, magical 3 watts per
gallon rule.
You would probably only need two as the tank isnt all that long.
You may also need a way to ventilate the heat that will be generated.

What would I put in it?
A reef!   ;)

monster red
