Congrats on all of that!! Btw, I'm getting to have my nano tank at the end of December! I went and looked at it and it was great! I forgot to take a picture. Silly me!

I ended up getting

http://www.marinedepot.com/Current_U...FIT54U-vi.html

Though I made sure to use marinedepot.com's price match to marineandreef.com and get extra so it was 184.95. I can't wait to get it

That's a nice set up. I bought for my 55g a 48'' 4 bulb t5 HO set up with 8 LED moonlight off e-bay for 102 shipped. I wish I would of saw this sooner I would of mentioned it to you. It seems like it's a no-name brand but the bulbs are up to par with other companies I have researched. Same watts/and output.

Does it have individual reflectors because that was a must have for me, and I was struggling to find one for less that did

No it does not, it has 1 reflector running behind the 4 bulbs. It's still a nice set up. If you dont mind me asking, why have reflectors behind each individual bulb? Brighter the light i'd assume. My tank to the top of the sand is about 18'' so It hits the bottom just fine.

The individual reflectors are usually made of higher quality reflective material and direct more light per bulb back to the tank and less bleeding over the edges of the tank.

I plan on getting 3 juvenile green chromis if they come in. Since I was doing such a large pwc to start I figured I would do it a day early
