What size tank are you using this for? I certainly wouldn't recommend getting another Marineland fixture. Most people who have them can't keep many, if any, corals alive for to long with them. It's a useful light for some things, though.

I'd start out with easy ones, as I always try to do in every tank. Mushrooms, zoas and palys are the first corals I'd introduce. If they respond well during the first couple of months you could give a Kenya tree, xenia and toadstool leather a go.

Do you have your rockwork in place yet? How about a picture?!!
