I have a red sea 200xl 24" long 23 wide and 21" tall , mostly lps and was wondering if I should go with 4 or 6 bulb ATI t5 dimmable. Will also be adding a reef brite xho blue as well. The tank is wide so I was leaning towards the 6 bulb but that may be too much light for the coral. Thanks

I would for sure do the 6 bulb but I would consider the 8 bulb also. I don’t really think the dimmable is necessary.

Thanks I think the 6 bulb also. Right now I have a 4 bulb Giesseman on the tank , but the fixture is narrow and I think I would get better coverage from a wider fixture.

I have a 6 bulb 24” i picked up at black friday. I used it for 3 months. Its mint. I switched to a Giesemann MH/T5 combo. I have box and everything it came with in perfect condition if your interested?
 

What percentage of blue versus white lighting do you think makes the best coral growth combo?
