Quick Saltwater question
Okay, I know this isn't planted related but I know a bunch of you folks have dabbled with marine aquariums, so I guess this is as good a place to ask as any...
A buddy of mine is starting up a saltwater tank. Tonight he proudly showed me his 70-gallon "saltwater package" that he just bought. There's a lot of about it I don't like, but the thing I noticed that was most worrisome was the fact that he has super crappy lighting. Just two basic 4-foot 10000k flourescent strips. He doesn't want a full blown reef tank, just fish, some shrimp, and probably some liverock, but not corals, anenomes or other such crazy invertibrates. To me, it seems like nice lighting would be necessary for the live rock to be of any use, but then again I know absolutely nothing about this particular hobby. I realize it is in no way adequate for a full reef tank, but is his light adequate enough for a fish-only / live rock tank?
