i had a questions..?? what corals u had in mind..?? if u go 6-8 tubes with single reflector, u can keep SPS for sure..!!
if u juz plan to have some hardy corals, LPS n softies in mind, 4 tubes of t5 with single reflector will do the job.....u can have 1xt5 daylight tubes, and go with ATI for another 3 for coloration....

you should be good to keep some of the higher-light corals...and even house low-lights down by the sand level

Ummmm the tank is 48" by 20" by 16" I think lol that's a complete guess though. It's just a basic 75.

But good I want to be able to but done corals down by the sand

Thank you very much you answered my question before I could ask it! Lol ya I'll definitely try that out. I'm also very excited because the 4bulb t5 also has a strip of LED moonlighting so I'm excited about that also. Does moonlighting do anything? Or just looks nice at night?

moonlight had nothing to do with grow or else for corals...its juz a low light spectrum with low watts to avoid some shock to the corals and fish when the DT go off...its juz like us, what will happen to your eyes when your house lights suddenly when blackout..?? this moonlights can give the fish and corals to settle down before totally out of lights and of course, a nice view at night with the shimmering effects from the LED.....
