    Hey Masa !
    I've recently started up a 1000L tank & bought 2 light fittings.
    All this time i thought that the MH's were 250w & i've just realised they are 150w.
    Each light unit has 2 x 24w blue t5's & 1 x 150w MH.
    It's a 2meter tank.
    Do you think that the tank is under-lighted ? I think i know the answer, but just don't wanna accept it !!!! Those units were expensive !

    Depends on the dimensions, aquascape and what you want to keep. If you going for 2islands and have the lights over them that wil work great. Also if i remember right the spread on a 150 is about 50cm sq.
