If money was no issue

What lighting system would you get for your tank?

Ill be getting my light system next month and really want to do a lot of research and make the right decision.

I have a 120 gallon tank 60x25x18 and want to be able to grow any coral available.

I am also planning on building a canopy for the tank.

Moved to General Hardware/Equipment Discussion... I'll assume putting this thread in the Freshwater & Brackish forums was an accident

Second that. You would need 2, since they cover 30in each
