The company is called beamswork with 27 - 1 watt LEDS. Not to bad on the wallet, about $100.
I plan on getting some coral just waiting till I fix my issue with my nitrates. I can't seem to get it lowered. I just bought a AquaC remora skimmer hoping that takes care off it.

Oh sweet! I'll have to check those out. For nitrates, regular water changes and good filter media like ploy-filters also help a bunch. that's what I put in my take to help with nitrates. The skimmer will help too. got any pics of the tank?

I have been doin normal water changes . And it really hasn't changed, I also added a nitrate absorbing sack in my filter system. It lowered it to about 80 ppm, still really high.

I think I might remove the crushed coral from the filter and replace it with ceramic bio. Maybe I have to much crushed coral in it that it can't pass thru. Who knows. I surprised my fish are still alive with that high of nitrate.
