45gal Hex Lighting Reccomendations
« on: August 01, 2019, 08:44:38 »
Hi guys! I'm in the beginning stages of setting up my 45gal hex tank, and I'm hoping to get some lighting reccomendations.
I'm wanting to do a clown/BTA nem tank with maybe a couple softies mixed in. I'd like to stick with LEDs, and the tank measures 24" tall by 22" wide. I have no problem using a black box light, just not sure if that will be enough for the nems.
Any recommendations/thoughts you've got would be super helpful, thank you!

I would think one Ocean Revive would be about perfect for that if you are looking for a low cost option.

Low cost options are always welcome with me! :D
I just wasn't sure something along those lines would have enough intensity for the BTAs

I have an OR over a 40 breeder and I have it quite high off the water line. Like 24. If you put the nem directly under the middle of the OR, you should have no trouble at all. Im getting over 400 PAR directly under it at 50% white and 90% blue.
