    Lighting for 200 gallon deep dimension tank

    Hello everyone,

    I'm looking for some information on what lighting system to go for. I have a 200 gallon tank that is 36" tall and I would like to use LED's. if you have a link to any specific products or just know the name and type of the light will you put a message in here for me and anyone else looking for new lights.

    some additional information:

    60" wide, 21" deep, 36" tall
    200 gallon tank
    Initially it will be FOWLR and after being established for a few months I will convert to a reef tank... Not sure what type of coral/inverts I will be using.

    thanks for the input

    currently have:
    60 gallon FOWLR
    30 gallon Quarantine tank

    -Marc

    thanks for the words of wisdom Senji. Any estimate on how much I should expect to spend before I go down and talk to them?

    My guess is 4 of the 4 cluster fixtures. Maybe 4 of ther 6 cluster

    Just a guess but they go for 269 for the 4 cluster
    And 369 I believe for the 6 cluster

    You may be able to get away with three of the 6's.
    Then again mojo would be the one to set you straight. Good luck.
    As senji said these guys are bang for your buck, local and down right know what their talking about. You won't be dissappointed

    Just for a ball park educated estimate.

    You will be looking at about a grand!!!
    Imo with your tank being so tall, Leds will be the most efficient, cost effective way to light your tank and have your corals grow well

    My vote, contact OBD

    is this a Marineland Deep Dimension? Measurements don't match.

    Radion, OBD or AI will all work. Just depends on your budget and the features that you want.

    It's a custom acrylic tank made by Eric at aquarium concepts as for what to go with for light I'm not familiar with those acronyms and I would like a basic set up that works well enough for a reef and maybe something I can add on to in the future when I start to convert to a reef from fowlr

    If im correct, the oceans by design(obd) lights cover a little more than 2 foot. So 3 of them should work. Id go with their lights as well. Their local, their sponsors, price is great, can be used in conjunction with a controller for some of the same effects as the radions, mojo and the crew are always trying to help. I could go on, but i wont. I would definately talk to them before purchasing. If your into do it yourself, you can talk to the guys at rapid led.
