Lighting going to be ok?

Iv got the 110g 60x18x24 and i will have fish, lr, and corals. 36" 192W Dual Strip Compact Fluorescent Light Fixture with one 96W bulb 12000K & one 96W bulb actinic 03. Since my tank is 60" i will purchace 2 so it will cover the whole tank. If this is not to good of an idea please input and no im not going with mh.

For that tank length/depth, 2 light strips spanning end to end will not do much more than grow corraline. Coral choices will be extremely limited. You would be much better off with a 4x110w VHO in which all 4 bulbs would span the entire length of the tank giving you better coverage and increased intensity.

Cheers
Steve
