Nuvo 4 gallon lighting

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone 

Ive decided to start a new even smaller tank hahah, while my nuvo 10 is cruising along nicely. Ive recently started cycling a nuvo 4 gallon pico and man am i stuck on what lighting to buy... i want to know everyone's thoughts on a suitable fixture for it, like the kessil a80, Ai prime or like a CC par 30 bulb. I want to/will put 1 or 2 sps frags in it but it will be mainly filled with lps and softies. 

As for like stock probably a porcelain crab and 1 or 2 sexy shrimp ? + CUC

On a small tank I'd do a par30 or 38. Coral compulsion has some really nice options.

I have a kessil a80 on my IM pico 4, works well and is adjustable and controllable with the added controller.  The gooseneck doesn't fit right for the tank and I would look for an alternative means of fastening it to the tank as this gooseneck won't let the light sit level 4-6 inches above the water line it's more like 10 inches which weakens the light.  Nice tank it's seriously my favorite of all my tanks
