I've purchased from marcorocks and have been very happy.
Livestock....hmmm, in my 55, I only have 2 no bar clowns (aka naked clowns) a tangaroya goby and a pistol shrimp.
Are you looking to do a specific region or are you looking to do specific colors?
.....aaaand, are you looking to do reef in the future?
I don't run a skimmer on my 55 (FOWLR).

I don't really have anything specific at all in terms of livestock. I'd just like to know what can be done. Something fairly colorful and active. reef is a possibility in the future, but certainly not for starters. I also don't see myself being able to afford some of the fancier lights you reef guys get anytime soon...I need a new car before I can get a $1000 light, sorry. haha. I could probably shell out another $200 or so down the road and get a 4X 54watt T5 HO. I guess if I'm feeling super rich I could get this.

I am not familiar with that brand, but in lighting and some other equipment, I think it might be better to buy your car and save up (since you are not planning on corals yet), and get a more cost effective lighting fixture now and upgrade later...or do a DIY system.

I currently own the 4X t5ho. I've got it over my 75gal planted tank. It's a really nice unit. Individual reflectors, moonlights, and my plants grow like crazy.

Do you have the nova extreme or the extreme pro? The pro has the "individual" reflectors. Keep in mind, the pro does not have the parabolic reflectors. I have the pro as well, I upgraded from the older version (nova extreme). Either way, both are good for what you want to do now.

LOL, duh, I was reading my response and saw nova mentioned, thinking it was your post! LOL! Sorry about that.
For a FOWLR, you will be good to go.
