Success with a reef aquarium depends on many factors. It is generally acknowledged that lighting and water movement are two of the more important parameters to consider. Advanced hobbyists can measure light intensity with lux or quantum meters.
The light and quantum measurements can often exceed that of the sun under some of the higher wattage lighting systems. It is only a matter of proper specimen placement to achieve the desired result…, but what of water movement?
