I'm not 100% sure, but I would go with the Nova Extreme Pro over the Nova extreme, it has better reflectors and more stable legs.

Scott, just going by the descriptions I beleive the Extreme has the better reflectors, but it does appear that the Pro model has more stable legs.

Did you notice other feature differences between them?

The Pro has the individual reflectors, the regular does not (I have the regular). The pro has 2 fans but no moonlight LEDs. My regular has some broken ceramic end caps, so I have two lights flickering (this is only about 1.5 years old). I liked it at first but am willing to give the Pro a try and toss the old one.

Welcome to AA!

As long as you keep the Acros towards the top of the tank they should be ok. T5s have a pretty good intensity so they usually support SPS corals. They may not have the same color as they would under MHs but they will survive. I have PCs over my frag tank right now and I see growth in my SPS just not the color.

Just checking. Sometime people get the tank the lights and put water in and think they are ready for corals and anemones. Glad to hear your tank is healthy and happy! WE do like seeing pics on this site so...
