    Default Setting up a 20 gal clownfish tank need advice on t5 fixtures

    The wife is letting me set up my 20 gal as a clownfish tank. I'd like to be able to keep an anemone in there, and was wondering how many bulbs am I going to need, will a 2 bulb fixture work, or do I have to do 4 bulb minimum.

    What kind of anemone are you putting on there? The four bulb should be plenty of light.

    My RBTA split on me a month or so ago, so that will probably be the one. That is if I can get one to move off the rock they are both on.

    Just point a powerhead at one of them. It should irritate it enough to make it move. Congratulations on the splite.

    Or maybe I can move them both to the 20 and get a carpet or something new for the 120. Lol

    That's the exact fixture I'm running on my 26g bow front. Love it!

    The fixture showed up yesterday, and is everything I expected out of Aquaticlife, this is the second of their fixtures I've bought and will probably be the only brand of fixture I'll ever use. The tank has been up and cycling since Tuesday. I'll try and get some pics and maybe a project log started on it and the 120. If I get sometime in my life that is.

    I have a aquatic life 12 bulb T5 fixture as well. Sweet fixtures! I like how they come with the purple bulbs now.
