Still gotta buy lr and ls.. hmm probably no larger than 200 for lights if possible. If not itll cut into my coral fund. Total budget around 600-700 dollars

I am also using distilled water due to no ro di units near me

This is pretty much top of the line

Aquarium Lighting for Reef Systems: Current Nova Extreme Pro Saltwater T-5 Fixtures

You could prob grow calms in there with that light LOL

But then theres these

Aquarium Lighting T5 Fluorescent Light Fixture: AquaticLife T5 HO and Lunar Light Fixtures

Good lights can grow most anything you want basically
Has lunar lights and a built in timer

Aquarium Lighting T5 Fluorescent Light Fixture: AquaticLife T5 HO and Lunar Light Fixtures

Aquarium Lighting T5 Fluorescent Light Fixture: AquaticLife T5 HO Dual Lamp Light Fixtures

Now these lights owuld let you grow all the easy stuff and they are attachable so you can add one on at a later date

Just some examples.. Hope it helps

How did you find that so fast...?

I really like the second one cause of the lunar leds. They come on at night? Can all lights be turned off as well?

Theres a timer built in too I believe. You can have them all on, just the blues,just the whites or just the moonlights.

The timer is going to be so convenient! So this will do well for most of the easier/medium corals? What light level is that, high/medium/low? I only know basic lights for my planted tank.

You should buy an led strip! Thats what the reiew for the first one said lol

Led's are kinda cool but they vary soo much in price, quality and so many other factors i wouldnt jump in on them just yet. Liek the marineland reef ready light. Its a nice color and looks awesome isnt too mcuh money but it's not a good example of leds. :-(

The lights that I linked are quad and double T5 fixtures. So 2 whites bulbs 2 actinic (blue) bulbs and themoonlights
