Well.. All coral need light to survive, as they are photosynthetic. Some of them a non-photosynthetic, but i doubt he has any of those because most need a ton of care to survive in a reef tank.

I think... with that light you have you may be able to keep softies. But that's about it. A 96W PC light over a 125G tank is like having a Normal Fluorescent fixture over a 55G tank. There's hardly any coverage, and the PAR is terrible. But since it IS PC lighting and not Normal Output, you may be able to keep some softies. But i wouldn't count on those lights sustaining much else.

Can you please give me the dimensions of your 125G tank? Then we will be able to direct you to the correct lighting solution. You will most likely either want to go T5HO or Metal Halide. LED's for a tank that size would be supremely expensive, and PC's are just useless on it. Unless you wanted to use them as actinic supplementation. But if you have the T5's you don;t need PC's at all.

Hmm... Well, with a tank that long you are going to want to with a 72" fixture, if you want complete coverage and the ability to put coral wherever you please.

I would go in to sites such as these:

Aquarium Lighting , Fish Tank Lighting, LED, Metal Halide, T5, VHO, PC, fluorescent Lighting & moonlights, Reef Tank Lighting, Saltwater aquarium Lighting, Discount Aquarium Lighting, Marine tank lights
Aquarium Lighting For Aquarium Lighting System Aquarium Lighting Fluorescent Aquarium Lighting Marine Aquarium Lighting Hood Aquarium Light Coralife Aqualight Current USA Lighting Reef Aquarium Lighting
Aquarium Lighting & Fish Tank Lights | Marine Depot

Or ebay,

and then decide on which type of lighting system you want to use, and then let us know what you choose and we can tell you whether or not the light will be sufficient for what you want. Look for 72 inch light fixtures.
