I have a light fixture (http://www.marineandreef.com/Aqualight_Com..._p/res53101.htm) and was planning on putting it on a 10 gallon aquarium for a nano reef. I am now going with a 20 gallon long and am wondering if this will be enough light for soft corals and mushrooms being the size has changed, or do I need more lighting for this.

What I am planning on keeping is Zooanthus sp., zoas, and a few mushrooms. Might put in a green star polyp later if I can keep it away from everything.

Hi Floridaguy
I'm affraid the only folks who can really tell you this are the light retailers. smile.gif
We have one large 6ft model and a 4ft one on our koi setup but as I've said it's koi not Marine which may need a full light on the Marine spectrum . unsure.gif

Lighting is not my forte. If I had more time, I'd check it out for you. My 12 gallon nano reef tank has two 24 W lamps over it. The URL to your light is cropped off so I can't click on it to see how many watts that it is.

That is ok Robyn, you have enough to do already. I wish you a speedy recovery. I've been researching it and believe it will work for softies and mushrooms. It is a 96 Watt light which is enough. Being it is a long the depth is not as deep which will be a plus. I found your blog on your SW very helpful. It gave me a long term view on what to expect and some of the mishaps I might be faced with.
