The proper lighting for your tank will soley depend on what it is you plan on keeping.

But a power compact retro fit kit and bolt it in the existing hood. Don't try and take the cheap route in this hobby you will regret it later. and will end up spending more money!

i would think real hard on what you are going to keep, because you will change your mind down the road on what you want to keep as you see the many cool and fasinating things that you can buy to put in your tank and will require the best equipment that you can afford and maybe more. im sure a lot of people will agree with me as experence is the best teacher.

goodluck

Again, it will depend on the species you want to keep, as to what the proper lighting is. The number of corals makes little difference, it is the species.

Hoskate,

I was'nt trying to be rude please don't take it that way. I just have a basement full of stuff that I thought at the time woud work well and did not. In this hobby it always seems everyone wants to start out simple and it just goes from there. Just trying to save you from spending to much 3 times over like i did!
