More light will help, but Odessa fixtures are kinda cheap and have been known to rust.

You need 6 feet of lighting...not 4. If you are considering t5's, I would want at least 6 lamps every 3 feet.

Search on eBay for 120w dimmable LED aquarium light. There are a few that come up but they are all essentially the se as the lights people talk about on here. They are about $180 each and you would need three for you tank. If you are still unsure post the link here before you buy to get people's opinion. Also check out the thread - lighting for your reef, best bang for your buck

I'm not sure if you have pet city in Melbourne, but they have an aquarium section so I called and asked about LEDs they said if need 3 for my tank and they were $1000 each!!! It's a very big difference in price, I don't know why I can't understand this light business :/

Would the quality of the LEDs you are talking about any different to what pet city would have?

Sorry if I'm bombarding you with questions.

Don't believe the hype. You don't need to spend that.

Yup, to be honest my local fish store (who only deals with marine fish) only stock super expensive LED units too. Luckily they can give realistic advice like, search on eBay etc... I believe the cost difference comes from the type of led chip that is used in the units - the units on eBay are the Chinese version and by all accounts are just as good as the top shelf ones. Again I would recommend before you buy to post on here with the specifications first, just incase you are missing something (technically) Where abouts do you live? In Brisbane city? You would think up there would have some good aquariums that only deal with marine, I know some good ones on the Sunshine Coast...
