Just a heads up, if you have ever used medications containing copper in the tank it will not be suitable for SW
invertebrates. It is quite lethal to them in even very small quantities and tends to seep out of the silicone so scrubbing does not help. As far as lighting goes, like Movinweight said 2x96 over that tank will allow you to keep a fairly wide variety of corals. Good luck!
