 Hi  all,
 
 My  friend  is  setting  up  a  marine  tank  of  the  following  dimensions  :
 4.10ft  X  2ft  X  2ft.  The  shopkeeper  had  suggested  him  to  go  for  2  metal  halides  lighting  for  the  same.
 He  would  like  to  know  the  substitute  of  the  halides  in  his  tank  if  he  is  going  to  keep  soft  corals  and  live  rocks.
 He  is  afraid  that  the  high  intensity  light  may  catch  fire  or  boil  the  whole  aquarium  water  (  since  we  are  from  bangalore  the  shop  keepers  had  not  suggested  any  chillers  for  the  tank  and  the  distance  between  the  upper  tank  edge  to  the  lights  fittings  will  10inches.)
 
 Is  it  possible  to  use  may  be  6/8  T5  to  produce  the  same  intensity  and  heat  for  the  required  temp  in  his  tank?  
 
 Kindly  reply  as  applicable.

 Since  the  Height  is  2'  i  would  suggest  T5HO.  Running  with  8  T5HOs  with  a  5:3  combo  (5  Whites  and  3  Actinics)  should  give  you  a  good  spread  of  can  increase  the  Actinics  if  you  want  more  Blueish  tank.  Since  the  Blues  are  not  considered  into  the  Power  Rating,  it  is  practically  a  5X54W  power  into  your  tank..  that  should  be  sufficient  to  get  the  tank  going.
