Ok that makes sense, I'm switching back from reef and am accustomed to doing a quick browse around find someone with same light as me see what they got see what I like and go get it. Since I can't find any tanks with halide I'm not too sure what I can get, what might suffer from too much light etc.
depends on how high your fxture is , what kind of fixture(reflector), are you adding lots of co2, what type of bulb, type of plants, effort you want to put into prunning
i have 3 150w halide lights, all are about 36 inch above supstrate, wide tanks, wide reflection, high co2, 8000k bulbs, ei dosing
plant growth is fast, algae not much of an issue
