Thanks . I hope to be upgrading to something like a 75 gallon in the next year, so I'll buy a strong fixture for that. It'll be cheaper than buying another one for my nano.
Update: So about a month ago I went to an LFS and bought what looked like and was sold as a Chalice. I then learned that it was a Montipora Setosa. I figured that if that was working, then maybe I should try some other type of SPS coral. I went to another LFS a week later and bought a Montipora Capricornis for $3. I happy to say that have been looking great under my stock T5 bulbs half way up the tank even with the recent GHA problem I've been having. Here's a pic I just took:
thats some serious GHA issues..need think of the source of that before adding any more to that tank, otherwise will die off quickly. especially monti's, monti + GHA = bad idea
I have an entire thread with my GHA problems. Please let me know what I could do differently. http://www.3reef.com/forums/algae/hair-algae-136190.html
just read through and posted
Thanks. Are you sure the corals will be okay in the dark? Also, is it safe if I use only moon lights?
No lights at all if you are going to do a blackout.
Got it And my corals will be okay?
Should be OK on a three day blackout, unhappy though. You should consider doing a light acclimation also.
