Okay, so if I wait a little longer and go for the 6light I should be fine? Instead of like 5.2 wpg it like around 7.5wpg

Watts per gallon is not a good rule of thumb in this application. there are other variables, like tank dimensions and lighting efficiency to think about. I would think you could keep whatever you wanted under a 6 lamp t5ho fixture over a 30 gallon tank.

Well, I think The Hidden Reef is the cheapest for dry goods. As for corals and fish....Pets plus has some sales from time to time and their prices then aren't too bad. They are located right on Business Route 1.
I don't know who's got the best deals though. I would suggest you hit all three places and then make your decision on a purchase.
I was able to haggle a bit with the pets plus manager on a piece of coral also.
