  1. FOWLR tanks may not need as much lighting horsepower as that of a full blown reef tank. However, you still want enough to grow macroalgae in the form of coralline algae, whose growth will be very dependent on the light sources used. You won't need much power, 75 PAR should suffice. As such some T5 lights would suffice. Depending on depth of rockscape I would recommend a four tube set up well spaced (2x2) mounted at 10 to 12 inches off the water. A mix of ATI blue plus and Coral Plus bulbs should give a good spectrum and aesthetic, as well as bringing out the colours of the fish. Equivalent
  2. Both RODI and distilled water are fine. Most long term reefers go with RODI as it removes all the impurities in the water from chemicals, to the heavy metals (even the odd radioactive isotope). The reason RODI is preferred is due to long term cost associated with other clean water sources. (If your tank is small then it may be ok to just get distilled). I would NOT go with tap water in a reef tank, even with the chemical agents used to treat the water it holds on to too many impurities which will build up in your system. Hope that helps.

  8. Depends what you are keeping, and your reefing goals, budget and to lessor degree tank size. I have an Aquaticlife T5 hybrid on my 4ftx3ft tank. I needed a good spread so went with this fixture. I run 3xATI blue plus and 1xActinic, I also have 3x Radion XR15 gen 4 pros with diffusers. Basically I have loads of horsepower (par) which I can control, and I have really good spread. Limited hot spots. Kessil A360X or AI hydra, or Prime and the orphek Atlantik v4 (#drool) were also on my radar when setting up the tank. The reason I personally went with the Radion xr15 was 1. It is a known qu
