    hi guys ive seen halogen globes of capacity 150w , 250w , 300w , 500w

    they are thin tubes of about 7cm / 8cm, could these be used in your tanks, i have a pic of it but not clear,it could give you and idea of what im speaking of...

    The kelvin rating is too low which will make your water look yellow. Your corals will grow like mad but the water will look like pee
