Lighting

http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...516&cmd=VIDESC

Is this light any good for my 90 gallon tank? I'm looking to have a bunch of corals and some fish. I know it's not the greatest light but will it work?

This is the light I use on my 36 gal. If your tank is only 48 long...then it must have some height to it and I would assume that if you were to get any high light needs for corals they would have to be at the top. as not much of your light will reach the bottom. Great light system though.

I bought this light already and am thinking I'm going to need a better light.

Do you think if I purchase the same light again and run them both it would work better? Or do you know of a better light I can use that will run me anywhere between $100 and $200?

Tank size is 48 x 18 x 24

Pretty much same dimensions as my 36...just a tad bigger. It depends on what you put in your tank. I would stay away from the more light demanding SPS and some LPS unless you can put them at the top of your reef.

I personally am sticking to mostly soft corals and zoas for the time being.

I have the aquatic life 48 inch t5 High output. Basically the same thing you describe here, 4 x 54 watt bulbs, and it's controlled by a computer. I really like it. I recommend it, but the one you describe here looks good too. I also got mine 2nd hand
