15 tall reef lights

Okay so I`m starting a 15 gallon tall nano reef tank and I`m still pretty clueless when it comes to coral. I know I need specific lighting, but which lights are best for beginner soft coral and mabye some hard.

You need at least 75 watts for some hard corals id go with a 80-100 watt light just search on eBay the length of the tank and reef lights

I`ve been looking for powerheads and couldn`t really find anything I liked, so thanks, really like those. I was thinking an aquaclear hob power filter along with a skimmer, still looking for a good one. https://www.petsolutions.com/C/Aquar...r-Filters.aspx
