  1. New Set Up Aqua One Ufo 550

    Hey guys thanks for the warm welcome! Grant- the tank is an aqua one ufo550. This is a corner tank 86cm across the front, 60cm from front to back measured along the side of the tank and 58cm deep. The capacity is approx 78 litres, according to a website. Not a massive tank, but just want to dip my toes into the marine word (not literally!). Carl did suggest that the lighting would be fine for soft coral, which I am happy to start with, them maybe if I progress to bigger tanks, I would be happy to invest in t5 lighting units. Do you agree that soft coral would be fine with the built in lighting, as long as I changed the bulbs to blue/white?? R
  2. New Set Up Aqua One Ufo 550

    Hi Darla, Thanks for the reply. I am currently in the research stage of my project so am unsure of the difference between soft and hard coral, but now that I know the lighting would be sufficient for some then, I can start to do a bit of research. I am looking to build up the reef at the back of the tank and don't want to over stock it, co any suggestions would be ideal. R.
  3. New Set Up Aqua One Ufo 550

    Hi, I am venturing into the world of a marine tank, and would like to create a reef tank with some fish. I have kept tropical for many years, but am struggling a bit with the equipment needed. I will be using a protein skimmer (hang on), an internal UV filter, heater and power heads for water movement. My main concern is the lighting situation. The UFO 550 he a built in light unit and wondered if the 2 bulbs in the unit would be strong enough for successful coral growth, or if I will require. Separate stronger unit. Any help would be very much appreciated. Cheers R
