I usually don't get kits I like to piece my tanks together with the things that are quality and last. I have gotten kits but gave away everything but the tank from them lol.

Sorry about that. At least you noticed it before you began to transfer the animals.

It really depends on the types of corals you are wanting. For softies and lps I would look into compact fluorescent, or a t5 light. If you are wanting sps or shimmer go with a 70w mh like from fishneedit.
