Help with lighting decision


Recommended Posts

I just recently picked up a 36gallon acrylic tank with 30g for display and 6g built on back refugium. The tank came with 2x24w (48w total) dual bulb Power compact 50-50's and I just picked up another power compact light with 2x65w (130w total)Dual bulb 10k and 2x65w Actinic. If I combine all into canopy will this be enough lighting for my reef? My tank dimensions are 20inches front to back, 24inches side to side, and 17.5inches tall.
