    hello I’m planing on setting up a 20g reef tank in my dorm room and I’m looking for a light that could grow some easy to keep soft and maybe some LPS corals but won’t break the bank:)

    Softy’s will grow on most lighting but a Chinese “mars” black box is prob where you want to go led, I personally now say get a newer one of those the par rating is dif to the older ones

    I've got a used Kessil A160 Tuna Blue that I'd sell for $115. I also have a 24" Coralife fixture with bulbs ATI Blue Plus and Aquablue Special that I'd sell for $40. Pm me if you are interested.
