  • Future plan about lighting. I wanna know your opinion

    Hi~ Zeovit family~
    I plan to make new SPS tank.
    it will be about 100gallon tank. I am not sure the tank SPEC,
    but I am thinking .....

    3.5~4feet length(100~120cm),
    2.5feet width(75~80cm),
    and 1.8feet depth(50cm)


    I can not decide what is the best choice. so I wanna know your opinion.

    I am thinking of

    2 AC14K 250watt DE with PFO mini pendant (both side)
    1 BLV 10K 250watt DE with PFO mini pendant(center)
    2 VHO actinic3 (URI) with icecap430

    How about that? Is it not bad?

    Could you tell me about your opinion?

    Thanks..

        OK~~ Thank Nick

        which is the best?
        1. BLV+VHO
        2. Phoniex+VHO
        3. Only Phoniex
        4. Only BLV
        5. Phoniex +BLV

        I do not know adding VHO is a good choice. To install VHO, I should buy all equipment
        about VHO (bulb,ballast) and consider the insatallation of mini pendant with VHO together. ie. I think Canopy for VHO and mini pendant should be necessary.

              I've come to like the AC/Pheonix on the M80 with a bit of actinic... But then I've always liked things colorful and a bit purple—not for everyone.

              Vince, I like your idea of;

              2 AC14K 250watt DE with PFO mini pendant (both side)
              1 BLV 10K 250watt DE with PFO mini pendant(center)
              2 VHO actinic3 (URI) with icecap430


              The BLV's compliment the AC/Pheonix's very well. But it would also look great with all AC/Pheonix with VHO's... Personally that is what I would do—AC/Pheonix with URI Super Actinics...

              But if you want to save $$$, Moonpod's right, the AC/Pheonix really need no supplementation for excellent color and slight actinic effect.
