Is this a good lighting kit for my tank?

i have a 40 gallon saltwater tank with fish and inverts and LR and LS. I want to start adding some corals if possible but i want a good lighting package. Would you recommend this light package quality wise as well as pricewise? Thanks.

My Tank is 30" long
12" wide
24" tall

Looks like your tank is 30inchs long and this fixture comes in 24 or 36 inchs. Great fixture though.

You may want to check with Darin from Captive Reefs to compare price points and quality. I love liveaquaria.com, but sometimes pricing is a little high on dry goods.

It is always nice to see people supporting our great sponsors. Plus, Darin's prices can not be beat (and he now has to start saving for college for number 2!)
