Light spec

Hey guys is this lighting spec any good? I'm clueless when it comes to lighting but I want to keep coral and fish!

Lighting total- T5 - 540W (10x54) - 5 x 54W 10,000K/5 x 54W actinic

Lighting standard configuration - 2 units T5-4x54W + with parabolic reflectors + 1 combo-unit T5-2x54W with 12 LED moonlights

Thanks for any help

Yeah it looks sweet! Expensive but it looks like the easiest option! I'm not getting it until nxt year as my house isn't ready til then! But I'm tryin to find out as much as I can about the hobby as I can! I hav a 25g tank but didn't know anything when I started so I want to make sure I start this one properly! I have a ro/di unit so I'm set for my water and I hav live rock in my 25g tank so it's a start to the LR!

what are the dimentions of the tank. its recommended that you have one T5 HO per 3-4 inches of aquarium width.

thats a pretty good fixture that you found, 10 lamp fixtures are hard to come by
