I couldn't find a decent T5 for a 72" tank so I got the Coralife Aqualight Pro HQI /CF fixture.

Also on the T5 an individual reflector will not be nearly as good as an individual parabolic (M shaped, bulb in the center) reflector. There is a big difference in light output between them.

No, I haven't started keeping SPFs corals yet.
But I wanted to know if it could happen "If a hard coral will continue to grow until it comes out of the water"
