Lighting Question


Recommended Posts

I've been searching around the past few weeks to see which lighting would be the best lighting option for my 24g Nano cube. I've narrowed my choices down to two, possibly a third lighting options...


The Tek light 24" with two sun bulbs, one blue, and one actinic bulbs.



The CurrentUSA 150W HQI sunpod



Would I have to buy separate actinic lights to supplement this?


or... the Finnex HQI 150W



I might be reading it wrong... but it looks like the Finnex has two power compact bulbs with it that I could get with 20000K to help with the actinic spectrum?


I currently have some Zoos, a hammer coral, and starburst polyps in my tank and I'm looking to try SPS or maybe even a clam after a little more experience and research.


Your opinions on any of these lighting options would be appreciated. Thank you.

Bump, would the sunpod be alright by itself with the 14000K MH or would the Finnex be better with the 20000K?


I am not a big fan of MH for small tanks becasue of the heat. I also prefer to keep the tank all self contained.


Have you looked at the nanocustoms 3.36 upgrade kit?




It is a hood mod and very nice. He now has new CNC machined reflectors that make the whole install a breeze. I got the 4.24 kit for my 12OG tank. I am just waiting for the new machined reflector to put it in and write the review article.
