    Ok im just trying to understand what the light needs are for Bubble tip Nems are. If i have a 15 gall tank with Highish rock work and one or 2 Small koralia PH then would a 2 bulb corralife T5HO with SLR on it be enuf to keep it happy ?


    Im trying to start a small tank to house a couple of my Leathers from the main tank. And thought a Nem would be Nice to have with them Plus we have a ***** of a clown in the sump that would like it.

    Lol Id understand about the Nem Being or getting to large. But leathers............? Ive had them in a 5 gall.

    I wouldn't mind if it covered the whole tank. I don't plan on buying anymore leathers or softy's.

    You could support MaxiMini's easy under those lights. You'll have no fish in this tank, right? MaxiMini's love to eat them!

    And in such a small tank the fish don't have much room to swim around the Nem.

    Just one clown. I was tossing the idea around about some other small fish but might go with some minis instead. I can sell the splits.
