Watts is old school need to test PAR to see what you can keep. But, if you want to go old school by using watts try out some LPS corals. Anemones need about 6 watts plus and SPS can be higher than that

Yeah I`m staying away from Anemones, I saw a post were an Anemone had ate a cleaner shrimp. The corals I`m looking at is frog spawn, mushrooms, and I`m looking some sort a branching coral, like a sea fan.

Odyssey fixtures are known to catch fire i believe, you would have to do a google search and see if anybody has tested the PAR. If you are going to go T5's look into ATI

They have made improvements since then and the newer ones have great reviews. This is the 2013 model and it has good reviews. I was on a budget and I plan on upgrading my lights any way as soon as I get the money.
