You'd be surprised how good this system looks. I'll get some pics of the 180 at the eyecare center...it has the same system. I know the MH system would be better but, being very used to operating on a tight budget, I wanted to offer some ideas that fit the budget that was posted.

Well it depends on what you want to keep, figure that out and we can advise on the best lighting. For a budget of 600, if you can't find MH on Ebay, you may be able to DIY for that, but with the budget, you'll have to stick to PC or VHO. As for champions pic...I saw some LPS lot's of softies and some very hardy SPS (M. digitata) which is known to be very acceptng of lower lighting, and also has a very nice habit of coloring very well under VHO. There are many SPS that can be grown under VHO and PC, even at the wattages suggested.

Well...I do get wholesale pricing due to the coral farm/aquarium maintenance thing I have going 8O . I guess I like their attitude too...they're always very patient with any questions I have and they do what they say they'll do. I just believe them to be a reputable retailer which is the biggest reason I recommend them.
