I could not believe the lfs said that, that light will support corals and clams. Well maybe I can. That light for clams for that tall of a tank will run you probably $500 so hopefully you got a super discount!! lol. I have never heard of that side light, I guess it makes sense but if you buy a Metal Halide fixture for the top you should be ok with just that and nothing for the side. Do you want your corals facing up or sideways? Probably up, so I would go with a fixture on the top.

I personally would go with sand instead of the CC. CC tends to trap waste and debris and causes elevated nitrates.

yea.. it clicked a little too late lol so im working on removing all the cc and replacing it with some live sand, i dont have much thats not expendible (a few hermit crabs and a few nassarius snails and 2 yellow tail damsels) except for my decorator crab, will the change have a negative affect on them? A petco here caries live sand i think..(it has water in the bag with the sand) but ill have to double check
