Croceas can most definitely not do well under PC lighting. I had one in my previous tank under 150w halides, and even then it only seemed happy when it was near the top of the tank.

Watts/gallon is a unreliable measure of lighting strength. The PAR of power compact lighting will never be as high as T5's/Metal Halides, and that is what these creatures truly need to do well long-term.

We are forever responsible for that which we tame...

Current Tank Info: 90 gallon
