I got the coolest maxima at wal-mart last night...........
IMO, don't get a light, get a glass top and use sunlight. You could get a smaller(100 gallon) tub and make it a fuge. Some corals could be added to, along with some Halichoeres/Pseudocheilinus wrasse to help with flatworms, etc. Good luck!
Would a glass top allow for sufficient photoperiod/intensity if your outside the equatorial regions?
Are you saying would the glass block out too much light? Yes, if you didn't clean it most likely. If you clean it regularly it shouldn't be a problem.
OMG me too ;D
no more just worried that the sun doesn't go directly overhead 365 days of the year unless your on the equator. The sun directly overhead amounts to a steady amount of sun each day with the maximum atmospheric penetration. I don't honestly know clams well enough to guess if, say, the sun at my house would be enough to satisfy them. Shoot maybe somebody has tried it though and would know for sure.
wierd place to live would be alaska in the summer theres no night
There was a video on here a few months ago on how to do it. It was a lot more informative than your notes.
