If you will be keeping both soft and LPS corals, I would go with the 4x96w PC set up. CustomSeaLife makes very good complete set ups. Some have also found that Coralife hoods are good but personally I do not like the bulbs...

Cheers
Steve

Are you willing to do some building? If so then you could look at www.hellolights.com for your ballast and wiring kits and then maybe www.hellolights.com for your bulbs.

I agree on the 4 X 96W

I would go with a Custom SeaLife moonlite hood. Nice and bright with built in moonlites and they look very cool.Check the sponsor special forum for our current special on these lights.
