    Currently I got two T5, (24W) tubes in my 150 liter tank and would like to add another two T5 (24W) tubes. What would be the best advice ? Will the fish / coral get stressed by the sudden additional light? I was thinking of adding one tube and may be after a day of two add the second.

    Any advice will be appreciated.

    Hi Greene

    If it was me i would add the new lights but only run them two hours the first few days after which you can increase there lighting period a hour a day till they are running the same amount of time to your current lights.
