i am using an ecotech marine radion xr30w pro for lighting, its over kill for alot of things but the night and day settings are awsome it even mimics thunderstorms with clouds and lighting. i have probs and an apac controler system that test everything from nitrite to calcium. again overkill for alot of people but i am a marine bio major so i conduct experiments on my tank and study breeding habits of small fish. if i were you i wouldnt go all out on this type of system unless you have the money and time. i got a whole sales cost for my stuff because i went through a program at my school that does that. i would stick to the standard T5 HO
lighing if it is FOWLR
but if you want a reef setup i would look into LED
AI its very trouble free because of to much lighting things can go a little crazy. getting back to the type of test kit to use i would find a REEF test kit it give more of options i would also buy add ons to the kit to make sure the whole bases was covered there are great books you can read that show you everything about reef tanks. i bought my first one at pet co
