Lighting question.

Hi I am currently running a 20 gallon reef tank and wanting to add corals. I've been to local pet stores looking for lighting systems an they have them but won't recommend one at all. I currently have a T8 standard lighting system but wanting to purchase something that also had lunar lights as well please help.

Well if you want the lunar light option your going to need a led light. You could pick up one for around $100 put this also depends on the corals you plan on growing.
