I bought the tank, stand, hood, and two sumps for 280 off of Craigslist. Lights I got off of Ebay for 120 plus 20 for shipping

They are 48 inch T-5 Lights. The one I found has, two 10,000 K Daylights, and two Actinic lamps. It also came with 4 Blue LED Nightlights that make the tank look great at night

Yeah that is kinda like it but its cheaper and mine doesn't have the external ballast. I am not sure on the limits on growing corals, but I do have a zoanthid colony doing pretty good so far underneath them. I think if you need a light, you should definitely jump on that deal on eBay because I almost think that one is better than the one I have.

Another Update... I decided I am not doing corals other than the zoo colony I have already.


I changed the rocks around again to suit the new occupant.



Guesses on what she is????
