Both Aquatraders and Odyessa do not have the best reputation for quality or service. That said, I have the 48inch version of the fixture you are looking at and am pretty happy with. It arrived in perfect condition and has worked great ever since. Others have not been so luck and have horror stories of deally with warrenty issues and customer service at Aquatraders. People either love them or hate them.

Okay then

What would be a good system to go with since i want to keep corals and invertebrates. im still leaning towards a 36" 305W Metal Halide Fixture & Ballast System if this will work for what i want to do. I just need a repuable name brand and some sites to purchase them from.

Any help is great appriciated
Thanks Guyz

Going with a MH fixture will allow you to keep a greater variety of animals. Both Coralife and Current USA make MH/CF fixtures that are do very well. You will pay 2-3x as much for these over the Oddyessa fixtures.

Go for the Coralife fixture in that case.
