    Lighting Question


    I'm new here, not sure if this post belongs here or in the coral section.

    I am thinking about moving my 20L reef into a 55 gallon, and I am not quite sure about lighting. Would a 48" T5 two bulb fixture with an ATI Blue Plus and Coral Plus bulb be good enough for mostly softy and a few LPS?

    I'm sure if you kept the LPS in the upper 50%-75% of the tank it may work. I'd keep an eye out for a 4 bulb fixture or even another 2 bulb to add to the tank. If your fixture has individual reflectors for each bulb that'll help.
