    I have a bid on a 90 (us) gallon tank, stand, hood & what I suspect is a 4x65 watt Coralife PC light fixture. The dimensions on the tank are 48*18*24. Will this ligthing be strong enough to reach the floor of a 24" tall tank?

    I have reposted this on several forums, just dying for an answer!

    Travdawg,
    Yes it is, especially if your substrate is 10" deep and you're growing some
    form of submerged mushrooms :) ..just kiddin'. It's 2.8888888 wpg of cf,
    that should do it: not high light, but not low, either. You can always double
    up the lighting, later, if you want to turn it into a ferrari :D

    Bill

    ps If you get it, I see a couple of 175w MHs in your horoscope :)

    psh, not in this horoscope, I couldnt affor dhte fixtures, much less the bulbs.

    edit: I am fairly sure I will be pickin this up. Its a SW tank currently, but he is gonna clean it out, sell me the tank, stand & what I suspect is a 4x65 watt Coralife fixture, & glass cover, all for around $325!!! I am waiting to find out what the light is. Not sure which model he has.

    It'd be great if the ballasts can drive 4- 96w lights! That would definitely do
    ya. That's a pretty good deal for $325!
