    That you can have a successful SPS tank with 2004 technology. Who needs to spend a ton when the essentials are quality lighting, rock, Flow, and Saltwater. I want to make the claim that I tried it all and still end up back at the basics. Discussion?

    Do corals benefit from the 20K light or is it only to enjoy the coloration of corals? What I mean is, does it have enough par? For example, if I keep my 20k for 8 hours and the 10k only for 3 or 4 hours maximum (With the same intensity), will the corals benefit? Thanks in advance Johnny
