my cousin selling me his tank, a 65 gallon bowfront 37"L x 22"H x 18"W, do you think 150 MH would be enough for a high light setup. the tank and the stand is $200 its a pretty good deal.

the reason why i want the 150MH is i want to put the ADA 8000k on it

How high are you mounting the lights? I don't know much about MHs, but that only works out to be ~2.3WPG. Is that equivalent to 2.3WPG in "flourescent" terms?

I've asked a few people about getting light to cover 36", and they said only if I mount it high enough. Otherwise, the top corners will not have enough light.

yeah its 2.3 something but i was wondering that its MH and not power compact so the lightning intense is much higher.
