Would it be alright to upgrade from a 130w pc over a 20H to 250w 14k halide? How would i do so without "shocking" what is in the tank? How high off the top should the halide be? and is 14k significant... as in do i need additional actinics? please let me know, thanks

You dont need actinics with a 14K but its personal preference. If you are going with 14K get either a hamilton or better yet a phoenix 14k bulb. The height of the halide depends on how deep your tank is and how hot the tank is running.

 

When you get the halide you need to only run it for a couple hours then work your way up from there each day...Id also move all your sensitive corals down to the bottom on the sand in the shadier parts..
