Do you think that's enough for a 150 or can I have more?
Think you can have more. Just add slowly to ensure your tanks bioload catches up... But I think your list is great and could add a lil more!!! very nice tank!

New to corals, What beginner level corals are cool, and what can I get with the lighting I already have? I have the 72" aquatic life t5 ho and lunar light fixture, it has 4 36" t5 ho 10000k 39w am bulbs, and 4 36" t5 ho 420/460 39w am bulbs and the 6 lunar LEDs. The tank is 27" deep.

I was looking on live Aquaria, do you think what I have would be considered moderate lighting?

Mr. X is best person to ask, but I would say yes IMO...

I would consider that moderate as well. Eight bulbs over 27" depth is kinda pushing it though I;m sure with some creative placement you can get other more light needy specimens.

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

Thanks, I will probably need to switch salt to reef crystals, instead of the basic instant ocean won't I? And what extra test kits will I need for corals?
