If you're interested here is the thread HN1 is talking about, I built it for my 120 to support everything I would ever want to put in it. If you have any questions about what I got where just give me a jingle. Lighting build in progress (PICS) for 120 FOWLR/Reef(later)
Lighting is a rough road to go down, I still have bruises.LOL

I actually have a tone of questions. But honestly, i don't know if this would be the right thing to do for a corner tank. I have bookmarked the page so when i get my 100 gallon WAY down the road i will definitely be using this.

What me and fish monkey talked about was this: 250/400W HQI Double Ended Pendant by IceCap - AquaCave

Do you think 1 of these would be good enough to light up my aquarium and get most of the corals and zoas i want?

*EDIT*
Found this: http://fortmyers.craigslist.org/lee/for/1304556591.html
ANY good?

Holy thread hijack!

Remember, the ballast for that light is sold separately.

Yeah, unless you want to run a 250W bulb. 400W is a LOT of light (and heat). We have a 400W pendant and ballast for the 48x48 frag tank and are considering a 250.
