I changed out my NO lights for 2-Coralife Aqualights (2x96w). In January I upgrade to the Coralife Aqualight Pro with (3-150w 10k MH HQI / 4-96w PC / 4 blue moon lights. They also make the same light in a 250MH version.

Here's what it looks like:

I just bought the same Aqualight pro for my 155g. Have a 4x96PC on my 72g now. Looking forward to doing better coral w/the new setup.

I have a 125L (72") and had it started with different PC fixtures totaling 520W. I was able to keep my birdsnests corals doing ok with this setup because the tank is so shallow but knew that I would need better lighting in the future. In Dec. I upgraded to a 72" fixture that had 3 x175W MH and 4 x 65W actinic blue PC. My friends comment that my tanks looks so much better and except for an incredible algae bloom, everything looks good. I did have to adjust my heaters and my power bill went up about $20 a month. I bought it from Aquatraders.com for $400 which is much cheaper than any other place but has a reputation for not having the best quality equipment. All my lighting and replacement bulbs have come from them for the last few years and I have had no problems. Good Luck!
