    I am looking for specific lighting recomendations for a non-CO2 20 gallon high tank. I am considering the Coralife 65W PC unit, but I suspect that is too much light.

    Anybody have any specific lighting suggestions?

    Regards,

    PMD

    20 w of PC lighting would be fine.
    30-40w of NO lighting would be good.

    Tom, NO FL at what distance from the top of the tank? I know NO FL does have less intensity as compared to PC.

    Unless the tank is deeper than 24 inches, intensity shouldn't be a problem.
