Fish need it?

I was wondering if anyone has purchased any of the fixtures from fishneedit.com. If I went with the 4 bulb fixture over a 90 gallon would I be limited in coral selection. Or would I only be able to do softies?? Thanks

i have heard that their fixtures aren't too bad. a 4 lamp T5 Ho fixture over a 90 gallon tank will limit you. i would use an 8 lamp over a 90.

6 bulb would be great in my opinion.

I agree that the fixtures arent too bad from what I have heard but feel it would be inadequate for a 90g. A 6 bulb, or even better an 8 bulb setup would give you more options.

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