hello all
would anyone give me advice on my proposed lighting i'm upgrading on
currently -
1 shoplight with 1 actnic and 1 6500 k daylight

3 48" t5 atnics strip lights
3 48" t5 10k daylight strip lights
(not sure if they will be 39 w or 54w)
the setup will go on a 90 gallon sw tank 24" deep

my lighting schedule will be
atnic 1 on at 630 am
atnic 2 on at 700 am
atnic 3 on at 730 am

10 k 1 on at 830 or 900 am
10 k 2 on at 900 or 930 am
10 k 3 on at 1100 am

shut down schedule
10 k 3 off at 800 pm
10 k 2 off at 830 pm
10 k 1 off at 900 pm

atnic 3 off at 930 pm
atnic 2 off at 1000 pm
atnic 1 off at 1100 pm

moonlights on at 1030 pm off at 730 am

how does this sound to all of you finnheads out there

also please tell me where to go on the web for some good t5 striplight and /or retrofit kits

the tank will start out as fowlr then goto full reef at 6 months +
also any ideas on what i can keep healthy with this light system
would like a pulsing xenia or 2 an anemone (for my clowns)
maybe some mushrooms but DEFINATLY a galaxea coral
