Distance between MH and water


Geraud

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am wondering at what distance should I put my 70W MH from the top of the water level in my tank?

 

The tank is a cube of 30cm (12 inches) in every dimension.

 

Thanks for your help,

 

 

Geraud

 

 

ps : I also have 2 9W blue PC. (but they just count for the 'color')

I have no chiller, I just use a simple PC fan in order to make the temperature go down. That works pretty well since such a setup enables to go as down as 27 degrees (C = 81 degrees F) when the room is... 35. (95 degrees F)

i dont know what coral you have in your tank

 

 

but i would start at 12 inches and work your way down to 6 inches

 

 

if you have sps i would definity do that

 

you might see coral bleaching if you dont

Does anyone have any good links for more info. Like, would having a 150W 12" from surface be the same as 70W 6" from surface? At what depth does MH loose its intensity?
