Oh I definitely agree with you sniperhank, just pointing out that there is a difference. Planning a new tank of 180-200 gallons or so, for that I will get LEDs.

Well i have 2 fixtures that fit for 18" bulbs. And I'd get LEDs if I had the money.

is what you have 2 plastic hoods with 18" lights that came with the aquarium setup. thats what mine came with. if so what you will have to so is get glass covers and a new light fixture. i have a quad t5 with built in timers and moonlights. paid about $110 for it and it works good. i only have a few small coral frags but they seem to be doing well.

From what I've read, t8's will not support coral. I can go to my local fish store for proof, he carries some basic corals, a couple leathers, button polyps, and mushrooms, and of they don't sell within around 2-4weeks they start shriveling up.

That doesn't sound like a lfs I would trust or support, maybe I spoiled having a quality guy so close tho.
