Not a bad looking fixture. has 6 bulbs and individual reflectors.

The only thing I would change is the 10k bulbs if you get it, I personally don't like my tank to have that yellowish hue to it. Another good thing is it uses 60" bulbs so you will get full coverage with it. the price isnt too bad either.

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

that fixture is fine for whatever you want to keep. i agree that you may need to swap out some lamps to get your perfect look, but you can grow sps, clams, whatever.

i would use a combination of ATI blue plus and ATI aquablue specials for the most part, and probably use a 6500k lamp and an ATI purple plus or a KZ fiji purple to offset the blue.

thats a great combo or you can go with 3 blue plus, a purple, an aquablue and a KZ coral light I which is 10k and pumps out some of the most PAR around.

my current 4 lamp setuo is all KZ as i can't find ATI anywhere around, anyways 2 super blues one fiji purple and a coral light II 14k
