Pretty sure this isn't glowing either, but I do run proper reef lights. No one is saying you need to have an over extreme blue tank, but you still need PROPER REEF LIGHTING TO KEEP CORAL.

No special filter used. Just my note 21 camera on regular photo option. Yes does look a little blue, only because normal camera's can't filter out even the slightest of blue.

I just need a ballast
Ballasts, endcaps, fixture, etc. Not just ballasts. lol

You really have no clue. Just give it up and let this thread die before no one wants to help you anymore.

I’m going to grow what comes on my Lr for 2 months then buy corals if I want to
Most of what is added won’t survive the cycle.
If you want to grow what you have properly, you need proper equipment. What you want is insufficient. Nobody said get something super expensive, just that your plan will not be successful.

Are you not listening to what anyone has told you? Have you taken in a single bit of advice?
It's quite obvious from his reply, hes a teenager that already knows everything.

And that would be a HUGE NOPE!

And these rocks are 50 feet down and shipping submerged they don’t need a lot of light and they just need a strong flow (filter) and a heater

Simply because what you want, WILL NOT WORK!!!.

Were not trying to take away your enthusasim, were trying to steer you in the right direction, but you have decided you already know it all.
