I have those. I quite like them. They do well for me. I haven't looked into putting a nem under them yet. Everything else seems to be doing fantastic though.

I had a 38g tank a while back with a single 175w metal halide 14k bulb, cost me about 150 bucks. A retrofit kit would probably be the way to go.

I have told if u r new to saltwater/reef, its better to get the biggest tank u can get. since the smaller tank u have, the more time u need to check on the paraM.

I would take the time to start cycle the tank, and at least let the tank settle for about 6months before u add anemones, maybe more depend on your paraM.
and for corals, all the pros r helping u on the light, so I will tag alone LOL.
but as AMD told me before, the light is all depend on wt u r keeping.
maybe get a list of what u want to keep then go look for the light?
^^

Same thing... Jebo Odyssea. lol

Google the search term "Jebo Odyssea Lighting" and read the reviews and forum posts. Then make up your own mind. I would NEVER allow one to run in my home though. That's my personal choice after researching and listening to firsthand accounts of issues.

I have an Odyssea T5HO but it had to be modified for extra cooling and to accept normal sized bulbs. The MH systems they make have been known to support your corals well, untill it burns down your house.
