Watt's per gallon is meaningless, let's squash that one folks.
How about: Tight of lighting, Par, wattage, color temp and depth of tank for a good measure of lighting.
Sorry for the random rant, just a little pet peave of mine.
NOT a true statement. I had a 10 gallon tank with stonies and Clams with a 400 watt MH and 2 9 watt PC's for years. That tank was fantastic.watts per gallon does have meaning; 150 watts of MH over a ten gallon tank is way, way too much
I dont think it does. Like you said there are to many other factors. It would be cool to have a meter of sorts, that you could use to set the optimum depth of a specific coral.Macbeth417 said:In what way does measuring watts per gallon ALONE qualify the quality or usefulness of a light source?
I agree 100% Illusion. If you based your lighting choice on WPG alone you could use cheap incadesent lighting and be set, but we all know what that would cause.Illusion said:One could have 20wpg with Pcs but would they have full success with SPS like Acros?
