Re: Lighting for 125 gallon (72") tank

Hi Amy,

How much money do you have in your budget?  For a 72 inch tank I would
suggest using 3 100Watt Venture 5000K MH bulbs with reflectors (a MH light
is good for illuminating 2 square feet of area) with electronic ballasts
(http://www.aromat.com/metalhal.htm) or an icecap 660 electronic VHO ballast
(http://www.icecapinc.com/) with  4 4ft NO lights like the GE Ultra
daylights 6500K spread out over the 6 feet.

Just a thought.  Good luck.
