After reading that last post I don't want the price to overwhelm you if your on a strict budget either cause you could easily add some t5s for enough to support softies and lps for probably $125

It's ok I looked before at some lights and saw they were a lot and had just hoped for a cheaper one but I'll pay the price for a good light.

Ya with that you'll be able to keep whatever you want really as long as you keep high light corals in the top half of the tank and low light corals under ledges and shaded areas. Placement will be key but with the right scape work and thought into it you could do a lot.

That's a good pick and actually what I was gonna recommend. It's gonna be nice and bright. One thing you want to watch out for is photo shock. There is a HUGE difference in intensity from what you have now. Consider leaving 2 bulbs out for the first two weeks. Go with 1 white/1 blue (actinic). Then after two weeks, add another actinic. Wait two weeks then add the last white. I don't mean to be insistant, but too much of a good thing real fast can kill the corals. They have gotten used to low intensity with what you currently have and might recess or bleach if you throw on a 4 bulb high intensity feature right away.

Good choice though.
