I use the Coralife 48" 4 x 65 watt and love it. I wish I had a bit more wattage but my shrooms, polyps and softies seem to do thrive under it. I do not have MH, but I leave my tank topless and get good light penetration. Also, Coralife makes moonlights that slide into the track on the back of their fixture. I just got a couple and it looks very nice at night.

Are you talking about the PC light or moonligh? The PC is a decent value. The moon lights are not. They are way over-priced for a one watt LED light, but honestly, they look really cool. It casts a blue shimmer over the tank much diferent then an actinic bulb. It is not a neccessity, but great for a Christmas list or if you have extra money. I am glad I got them. I have two for my 72 gal. BF.

Salty72...sounds like we have the same size tank. I to have often wondered what else I could put with it. It does seem a bit wide for anything else to go up top. Seriously, check out Coralife's moonlight. I tis called the Blue-Moon-Glow LED.

Coirallife makes an awesome product. I have had little problems with returns do to low quality. Even if you do have a problem they will take care of it ASAP!
