I personally don't know of any that would be relatively low-cost for such a long tank, try asking Flake about what she has set up for her 90G

Does anyone have any insight on the 48" marineland led light? Can I use this light for most corals? I don't really want to be limited to what corals I can keep. I have a 60 gallon tank that is 48" long... Can this be my only means of light?

Those marineland fixtures I wouldn't use to keep anything but soft corals, and that's closer to the top. It's not a very strong fixture and kind of a waste IMO..

I know they're expensive but maybe look into ecoxotic fixtures

All 3 will give you great results coral-wise. If you go for the 6-lamp, IMO get the Nova Extreme Pro, it has fans to cool and I've never heard of the regular Nova Extreme being 6-lamp, only 2-4.

If you go for 4 bulbs just get the one from fishneedit.com, it'll probably be cheaper

I believe someone is, just use the search bar and type aquaticlife.

I guess it's just a preference, I personally wouldn't spend the extra on a built-in timer since I always have my actinics on and my daylights are on a timer
