LOL Well, after researching it out a bit last night, I think I'll actually go with IO. Coralife has plenty of bad reviews, and from what they say it's for a FO tank not a reef. (Then again.. I'm not really doing a reef lol!)

If I'm not too lazy I'll take some pics of my tank all lit up.

Alrighty then! I decided to go ahead and take some pics of the lighting even though it's light out and it doesn't accomplish the same effect...

Anyway! Here's pics!



Daylights (with flash.. oops lol)



Daylights (without the flash)



Actinics



Actinics + Daylight.

I can't believe how much of a difference there is between PC lights and the standard light that came with the tank.

(Edit: Working in a flower shop, I get lots of free buckets!

[yes it's a clean bucket])

xD Don't remind me about the weight! -cringe-

The stand is designed for this exact tank, so it must be fine. lol

And the light is a Coralife 2x55W and 2x65W PC fixture. (I don't know the model lol) It's the one I got for 75 bucks!

I was thinking of getting a 55G but if I'm going to do it, I might as well do it right!

LOL The sand will come when my parents are in a good mood.. Not going to happen any time soon.

I didn't do anything this summer but work in the store, (I have no life apparently lol) so I think they should buy me the sand.
