For those who have not worked with large tanks before, do be aware that
large tanks (>100 US Gallons) require less light (intensity/gallon) than
mid-sized tanks (20- ~75+ USG). That especially applies to those with
near-square cross-sections, such as 24x~24x 48" (nominal 120 USG and
24x~24x72" nominal 180 USG.
Folks generally find that the larger conventional rectangular tanks need
significantly less intensity for good to excellent growth, just as small
tanks (10 USG) and nano tanks require more intensity.
This seems counter-intuitive to me. Is there an explanation as to why?
