Lighting?

I just purchased a fluval full spectrum marine and reef led light. Was wondering if this would work for corral in the future when I get to that point.

Soft corals like mushrooms and zoas perhaps.

There nano unit had mushrooms reaching for light in the bottom of a 10 directly below it. If you have a deep tank your probably going to want a different light

I have the orbit over my 40g breeder tank but that tank is alot more shallow than a 60g is. I am however having really good results with it so far. But its only been a month or two.

I also have a 60g cube and was running the tao led panel over it but upgraded to a radion. You will only need one panel for it also.

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