Hi all,

I'm still pretty new at this and been working on my tank for over 6 months now. I have the Juwel Helialux currently setup for my Reef tank. Currently no corals just some fish and a Green BTE.

My BTE has been pretty healthy for last month but has started to look sick. I'm wondering if this light is strong enough.

I have a 190Ltr corner tank thats 60cm deep. I'm using the Helialux 700 LED unit. Is this enough for my BTE and corals? Link to light unit is here: https://www.juwel-aquarium.co.uk/Products/Lighting/LED/HeliaLux-LED/HeliaLux-Spectrum/

IMHO 32 watts is a bit weak for a 24" deep tank. If the BTA is higher up, say 12" off the bottom, it would have a reasonable chance to stay healthy.
 

How important is sand sifting or sand stirring livestock to your reef tank?
