hello I am new to this forum and to reef tanks.I am going to be setting up a 10G and was looking at the coralife 20" 1x96 watt and was wondering if that wuld be too much light? also what are some good places to order lights and supplies online? thanks.

Too much light really isn't an issue (unless you were to strap 4 or 5 400w MH's over the 10..and then you'd be boiling the water..lol). Marinedepot.com is a good place for metal halides..I don't know about PC's. I'd go with a 150w halide over the 10gal. For the few extra dollars you get much better lighting..there's a thread on here for a 150 w halide for about $110 if you feel like DIYing it. Trust me..its worth it for the huge upgrade in light quality.

 

Cheers,

Fred
