Hi all
Got the tank set up. Have a lighting problem and need advice please
It's going to be soft coral only
Currently have 2 54w and 2 39w white along with a 54w blue all t5
Halides is not an option so what extra do you think I should add
Thanks
Tilly

the 200w of lighting you have is plenty for softs and even ok for most LPS. to be honest there are some sps that will be ok under that light.

(obviously excluding water conditions ect)
