I have no reactors yet. Don't see a need yet. Probably has more to do with finicky SPS corals. It is easier to keep soft corals.

I think I would get a tank controller before getting a reactor.

Ebay. But when buying lights, u will always more then likely get what you pay for so dont skimp. Spend a few hundred at least.

Those lights are more then enough to cover his tank, but he is going with another unit on the other side. Mushrooms may be the only thing and maybe some zoas.
