I will never have corals in this tank. I already have a reef in the same room. I want lights with a controller so they can ramp up and down according to a timer, and have moonlights. There's a package on Amazon of Orbits with a controller. Under $200. I'm interested in that one if it will do what they say it will. That's about what I can spend. Maybe a little more. The lid and lights are all I need now.
Thanks again for coming back to me. I can always count on you.

Sure, the orbit fixture is fine for what you are trying to achieve.

Great, Doug. Really appreciate your advice. The prices everywhere and on everything related to fresh and saltwater are rising. I guess everyone got a tank for Christmas. I was able, however, to get a Remora S for $199.99, no shipping and comes with the Cobalt. Think I got lucky.

It's this one, right? This one will even allow you to keep some lower light corals, if you ever change your mind....

Yep, that's it. Is it possible to get the 24"-36" since I won't need as much zing? Don't know how they fit on the tank.

I guess not. Will talk to my husband. If we have to we'll go to the LFS and check one out with a 40b and see. You sure have been a help with this tank. I want you to know that I appreciate it. Not that I'm through with questions, Doug. You can't get off that easy.

Your welcome. I just don't like to see people spend twice, and kill stuff .

I've had the reef for about 2 years. Lost 2 fish, and 3 corals. About broke my heart. Don't intend to lose fish in this one unless I can't possibly help it. Just like my mom says about children, "they didn't ask to be born, so you better take the best care of them you can". I plan on doing that, which is why i ask for help from the "professionals".
