Why is Reefing so hard ?
Hi, I have got alot ups and downs with this issue of wheather i should use an overflow with my 110 Gallon not drilled tank or just buy a 90 gallon tank at my local fish store that is already drilled for $280.00 ? Also the 90 Gallon is 48" Long 18" Deep 24" High and my 110 gallon tank is 48" Long 18" Deep 31" High. I know the only thing that is going to make a difference is the strength of the light i will need and using an overflow or not. Right now i am planning to make my 110 gallon a reef tank and i am going to need a 2 x 250 watt Metal Halide Fixture. I am wondering that if i get the 90 gallon i dont know if i will need 2 x 250? Will a 2 x 150 Metal Halide Fixture do it? It will also be less harsh on my utility bill. On estimate what does a 2 x 250 Fixture cost to run monthly? What does a 2 x 150 cost to run monthly? I have a few pictures of my tank on the website if you want take a look and tell me what you think? Anyone with any information could really help me because i want a reef tank that is going to be healthy and the best for what i have to work with. Thanks for you help !!!
