And they are 39W bulbs...I would be able to tweak the colors so i can get some really nice colors to pop correct?

I think it would totally depend on seeing it in person and adjusting. you want full coverage but you dont want to hang it too high either.

The 6 bulbs should make up for alot I think anyways. Do you have any idea how you would hang it? Does it have a hanging kit available for it?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Marinedepot has a selection for an AquaticLife Hanging kit so it seems to be possible...i'm actually reading it now...But that's gonna be a big day for me dropping about 500 bucks on the light...lol.

Lol...thats so funny...I was just looking at that exact one!!! Get out of my head Carey!!! I think this will work perfectly...just gotta save a 100 bucks a week, have a few drinks and just buy the light...then decide what bulbs to get...comes with:

(4) 24" T5 HO 24W Actinic / Blue Lamps
(1) 24" T5 HO 24W 10,000K Lamps
(1) 24” T5 HO 24W Purple Lamp
(2) 1W Lunar LED's

Probably would upgrade to better bulbs like Mr X. had suggested before

Me, I;d keep the purple and the actinics. Trade out the 2 10k's for maybe an ati aquablue special at about 12k spectrum.
