Best lighting for a 37g reef??


New member
I need to get lights that are 30" long. Can anyone give me some suggestions? Id like average to strong lighting.

If I were lighting a 37g now I would go with T5s, especially considering you want to put them in a canopy of have a unit that sits on the tank. You want the High Output (HO) T5s though. The Aqualight unit you listed is a normal output T5 fixture and is not appropriate for a reef.
