The tank i will be using is either 60 or 65 cm tall, and based on my existing tank will have about 7cm gap between water surface and top of the tank. Is there a way to tell how suitable lights are for corals by looking at product specifications? if seen a Watt per Litre rule but this doesnt make sense to me as LED lights use about half the power of flourescents etc.
I might look in to having an open top with led lights hanging over but it just doesn't sit well with me. I worry about evaporation, fish escaping and stuff/chemicals falling in to the tank. Im sure there will be some options for me just need to research that specifically.
I think i have sourced a Juwel Lido 200 for £100. I should get £100 if i sell my current setup so its a no brainer, hope it pulls off. I will probably start a new thread showing the full conversion from start to finish when I begin.
