I am contemplating buying a MH pendant. Will a 250W be too strong for a 600mm cube?
depending on the type of tank you going for....
Lps-150w/250w depending on what kind and how low they are and what globes you are going to use
250 watt will be perfect,you can keep any light needing corals in this set-up and they will grow as long as everything else is in order.
150w will not be enough IMO.unless you only want softies.
Cool, thanks - 250W it is then. Would you supplement with T5's 20000K for a bit of illumination? I might go the LED route for sunrise/sunset.
Go with the 250W. If you add a 14000K bulb and two Actinic T5's for sunrise/sunset, that would be cool. Do you have a light pendant in mind? You must also take into consideration the reflector as this needs to be broad to distribute the light all over the tank
