65W enough for 29G???


Recommended Posts

I have a 29G tank that was used for only keeping 3 goldfish. Sadly they didnt survive the 4 Florida hurricanes a few months ago. Its just been sitting around since with no fish.


I want to convert it to a SW tank. It would mainly be a FOWLR to put a clown or 2 in there but also a couple zoos and shrooms. I would like to know if the Satellite 1x65w fixture would be enough for the clown(s) and if any corals.


Thank you!

it should be ok, mushrooms, zoos, brains, candy canes are a few that i can think of that would be ok with that type of lighting. :)

65w over a 29 isn't going to let you keep anything besides maybe some 'shrooms. It's okay for a FOWLR, but not a reef.

Yep agreed, go with the most light you can afford. 130w over a 29 isn't squat and you'll be looking to upgrade with in a few months. By the way, get a pendant.
