    Sorry to go off topic Mike.Dont you think the 150W MH might be an over kill?
    Why not consider the T5 route?

    Wouldn't the shortest T5 be too long for a 24g? (assuming its a cube)

    i know you can get a 100wat bulb in mh. but don't think it will work with a 150watt ballest
    i have seen some guys with 150watts mh in nano's.
    very confused at the moment about this whole light thing.
    I am very happy to not go the mh root.

    um its about 10 cm from the light. the flow i got 2 koralia nano 900l/h pumps.
    just a pump that came with my bjb nano. i thin it pumps at 900l an hour i think.
    and a small shitty pump don't now what is called. small thing. i will post pic's when i get home.
