    So one of my lights blew. I got it out and this is what it was. Good? Bad? Can do better? If so, then what? It's a 10

    That's fine for a "fish only" tank. I doubt it's enough light for any type of photosynthetic coral.

    If your lookin to keep coral you def. need to upgrade your light fixture. Aim for 4watts/gal

    Well I don't know if I have photosynthetic coral. I do know I have feather dusters and a green blob that might be a ball anemone. My LR has been in my tank for a week and half now. I want some zoas. Since it's a 10 I was thinking inverts and MAYBE ( don't let Biff see this) a clown.

    Oh wait. Ok. You said 4 watts per gallon. So 40 watts. 20 each side I'm guessing?! Lol I'm such a doofus
