    hi, can anyone give me some advice on what im limited to keeping with my current lights (just stuff like zoas, xenia, mushrooms), AquaRay MicroLED light with LG TopLEDs (Ocean White 9000k). i would like to get a small acropora or montipora frag but dont know if the light will be suitable for it.

    Thanx :thumbup:

    i might upgrade these lights with a diy led unit or wait until i save up enough cash until i can upgrade to --> 28 U.S Gallon Nano-Cube with 150W HQI | The Aquarium Solution.

    if i do go the diy led route im thinking of 3 cool white and 3 royal blue cree leds which are 3W each might bumb up to 6 leds per color or would that many be overkill?

    i found this which might be the option
