Par30 on a 10gallon

Would a Par 30 with 90 degree optics be good for a standard 10 gallon tank with soft corals and anemones. how high off the water should it be and also could sps and lps be kept under it easily.

When you say anemones do u mean like a BTA or like... mushrooms? I'd go with a 60* maybe. It really depends on your rock scape. Obviously the lighting will be strongest directly under the lamp and get dimmer as you go outwards. a par30 can support SPS and definitely LPS. But again it depends on where you place it with regards to the "cone" of light.

 

It'll probably be need to be around 6 inches above the water. At least that's what I did with my 2 par30's on a 20L. Those were 60* optics tho.

Yeah anemone would be Long tentacle, condy or BTA. The nem I have right now is in my avatar. Just wanted to know if SPS were okay in case I decide to upgrade in the future.

 

My GSP and nem thank you :)
