Recommendations for 150 gallon reef tank.

Recommended Posts


I just aquired a 72" X 17" w X 32" deep.


I never considered making my own light until I joined this forum and saw you guys as a sponsor.  I am a DIY guy and if I can save any money I would rather go the DIY route.  

I am very comfortable with electronics and controls, so the actual assembly isn't anything I am worried about.


But I am curious as to exactly what is recommended and needed for my tank.  Would I be better with one 72" heatsink and light, or three 24" or two 36" lights?

Diy can add up real quick... But you do get you custom made preferences. 


For your build I would get two 36" fixtures of some kind. 


Last time I built a custom made light for a 24" tank it cost $400-$500 easily. 


I'm bored though so let me see what kind of shopping cart I can create 😂
