T-5 light questoin

Could anyone tell me a good reasonably priced light to get for my 125 reef that I'm starting I have t-8 right now but I know that's not sufficient for corals. Also if anyone knows good return pump for my sump. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Light depends on what your budget is and what type of corals you want to keep.

I'm a fan of the danner mag pumps. I have a mag 9.5 on my tank. However, I wish I had purchased a smaller pump; a mag 5 or mag7 would have been fine.

Will be difficult finding a 6' light that grows all corals for that price range. You are realistically lookiing at around 500-600 if you are buying new. And that would be on the low end of the cost scale.
