Upgrading lighting.


Can I run a 48 inch coralife PC 4 x 65 watts with only two of the four bulbs running over a 55 gallon tank? Are there any problems with doing it that way? I want to upgrade my existing lighting but I am not ready for 4.72 watts per gallon yet. Someday I may want to though and don't want to have to upgrade again.

Definitely. Just unplug two of the bulbs and set them aside until you're ready for those intense lighting levels.
