I don't think a 4 bulb will do it though. Thats part of my concern. And for the price of that fixture I can get LED's I would think.

Maybe, but I didn't see any that low. I can't look on ebay at work.

You could try these...I think LEDs are the best thing since sliced bread lol. They are just so darn expensive. Couldn't you also go with metal halides??

I've been doing some reading up on LED's and was wondering if I don't want some red in the spectrum for better coral growth.

That ecoxotic fixture is for a canopy and I don't have one. lol I plan on hanging it above the tank. It also didn't list any wattage for the bulbs but what i did like is it's dimmable version is compatible with the controllers I've been looking at.

I would go for the 60g tank and not the controller. Just my opinion, as you know I enjoy following new builds! lol.
