Hi.

I was wondering can you run a marine tank only on metal halides.

If so what wattage and how many of them?

Yes. Wattage and amount depends on the size of the tank and the corals.

Yes I have seen plenty of nano`s running on MH alone,just use a higher K say around 1400k for that nice crisp light colour.
