What do you want to spend and what corals do you intend to keep?

Honestly I'm looking towards brain coral but it seems too pricey so not completely sure but some kind of soft coral

You can buy a single one of these-
New Dimmable 120W Aquarium Coral Reef Fish Tank White Blue LED Light Black Shell | eBay
It will allow you to grow whatever you want.

Hey X not to hi - jack this thread but I'm looking for LED's to replace my T5's on my 125g. How many of these fixtures would I need in order to keep an assortment of corals. My tank is roughly 5'x3'x3'
