One of the nicer looking ones that your likely to see during the day are linckias. Have you discovered liveaquaria.com yet? It's kinda the standard for compatibility, husbandry, and pricing.

I've been looking into lighting and since I want to attach it to the top of the canopy I have to go with reto lighting correct?

I found this one and I wanted your opinions. I can't find a retro light with more than 2 bulbs that's already made up but I can use 3 of these! And I also found these timer things that I'm trying to understand any info or input would be great!

The second link looks like a good fixture.

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

Those are ok. I don't think you need that hanging kit with those ready made retros. You just screw them in as far as I remember.
There are a few different brands out there around the same price I'd consider along with the Hamiltons.
These are nice and come with some LEDs-
Coralvue 48 Inch 2 Lamp T5 Retrofit Kit with LEDs

Oops attached the wrong link! I was trying to put the timers up.

http://www.petsolutions.com/C/Aquari...ps-Timers.aspx

And question!

Could I use the hanging kit to hang a regular fixture inside the canopy? I'm just trying to eliminate all the cords.

I also found this without a timer but idk about the brand
