    Will 6x54w sunpower be enough to cover a 150g 48x30x24"high? Tank is mainly shroom, anemone and some lps.

    I would get the 8bulb fixture.the 6bulb would work but might look dim and dark in the front and back.

    i have an 8-bulb ati dimmable over a standard 120g and would say that you'll be fine. for the most part i am not using all 8 bulbs anyway as my schedule only has them running together close to max brightness for about 3 hours a day with a long ramp up and down.

    I have an 8x54w dimmable over my 75, probably a little much, but it works great. What kind of corals are you looking at keeping?
