Corals/lighting

I need some help with coral choices.

This is my lighting for my 10g right now. I'm currently preparing to move everything to a 20g long I recently acquired. Any suggestions on upgrading the lighting?

EVO 18 LED Reef Bright

For the time being I'm using that light on my 20g. If I can grow coral with it then I'll keep it. If I need to upgrade I will try but I need good lights at good prices. (I have a limited budget)

You'll have to upgrade. Look at the eBay LEDS or par38s

I think that is targeted for planted freshwater.

A lot of people use these:

There are blue and white ones too.

If you want something with all the bells and whistles, try the orbit marine LED. The LEDS are .25 watts, but it works for softies and LPS, ask Carey about it. She just got one for a 40b.

Check on the warranty for any light. I believe Aqua Traders is very limited. I bought a 72 inch MH fixture that lasted less than 6 months.

Probably not, there was some debate over the beams work that was meant to grow corals, some had success and some didn't,

In reality, to grow anything, if go with the eBay ones, the full spectrum has a really purple hue.
