Ok thanks you


And just to recap
A t5 light fixture is the cheapest way to go for beginners for this tanks? That would work well for these coral?

Actually if you find a deal or find a cheap PC (power compact) light fixture that would grow zoas and mushrooms. Prob. cheaper than T5s.

Cheaper of many. Something like this:

Coralife Aqualight Compact Fluorescent Retrofit Kits

You can make your hood and attach this.

I think those are T12 lights? Really not sure about that though. You'd have to have special endcaps for T5...
