HWEP Posted September 20, 2021 Share Posted September 20, 2021 Hi,I seem to have a tank that's causing a clash of opinions on what size light to get.My tank dimensions are: L61 x W50 x H50cm (24” x 19.7” x 20”) and i have a fairly flat scape; 4 rocks in a row, kept basic for coral real estate and basically no shadowing.I keep LPS and softies- nothing particularly rare or exceptionally hard. I had an AI prime a while ago and it suddenly died, i carried it over from my evo. Now using a Nicrew 100W which i just can't get on with due to my working life.Is ONE 16HD enough to cover the tank with the par i'd require? Some people say yes easily, others say absolutely not you need 2 or a Hydra.I just don't have the money for a Hydra 32. After the last 16hd died i learned the seller basically took it for a swim before he sold it to me, so i won't buy 2nd hand again.I'm happy to keep my Nicrew as well and pop it on blues at night for a few hours when i'm home but i just need a light with scheduling as i work very long days 6 days a week.Can someone just give me a clear, concise answer before i lose my mind!!
