Re: [APD] A lighting and nutrient question...

I have to agree with others who keep giving the same advice - that is just 
an awful lot of light for a first tank. It would be like giving a racecar to 
a newbie driver, and saying he can't go under 100 mph. It's not a matter of 
research, it's that any little imbalance in nutrients will cause a huge 
algae outbreak very very quickly under that much light. And since these are 
living systems with many variables - plant load, fish load, nutrient load, 
water paremeters -as you probably know from your reef work, it's not 
necessarily a cookbook solution.
