For Leds the taotronics LED panels on amazon are the best bang for you buck out there for a reef. dimmable with two color channels, blue and white. each fixture will cover 2 ft of tank and will grow most anything. Welcome to AA!

Sweet thanks Fatboyfish...can you reccomend a brand of skimmer for my size tank?? Aqua One seems to be the rage here at the moment but im hesitant from previous exerience... so do you think if I have enough seeded dry and live rock I wont need a cannister filter as well? Ill check them out Dallascowboys16 cheers
