What light

I have a frag tank 30"x12"x12" and have everything but the light ready to go. What would everyone's suggestion be as I'm on the fence about what I'm gonna put on it.

What is your budget? There are some budget LED options, like the Taotronics units on eBay, and the reefbreeders (Reef Breeders LED Fixtures) fixtures.

If you want something with more control, a single AI Sol or Radion would be more than enough light to grow anything.

If you plan on just growing softies and zoas and the like, you could go with T5HO lighting as well and it would be more than adequate. With the tank being that shallow, your options are almost limitless.

I have been running 50w led floods on my tank and the corals seem to love it! And 30w blue floods.
