I am new to the saltwater side of the hobby but I have herd on a tank that high... A 6buld would be needed for most stuff or LED's

I also hear that the marineland reef capable can't keep snitching alive except soft corals

A 4 bulb T5HO can do softies and some LPS. Pretty much, everyone should just buy chinese knockoff leds.
