    Hey guys, i have finally received my new tank. it is a 600l with a 100l sump, i have 1 concern though! i am going to be using it a reef tank tank, i have 2x T5 lights that came with the tank, is that sufficient lighting for this size tank?

    2 x T5's is a bit low depending on depth and what you would like to grow in terms of corals, a well placed T5 on a fish only system with that many tubes would be fine, depth dependant of course ;)

    oh and :welcome6:

    Thanks!!

    The tank is about 800 deep, i am a little new to this, i have a 54l Nano tank which i have had for about 6months now and is looking great, so i thought i would try do this properly now, but a little nervous to start!! ha ha ha

    just want to make sure i can get things as close to perfect as i can, before i throw in the guppies!!!!!

    what corals do you want to keep? That is what will matter with lighting, but a 800 deep tank aint good for lighting
