I think you should either look for more fixtures or get new bulbs. The first one you linked I dont think will support coral. The second one is only a 2 bulb setup.

have you looked here:

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Probably mushrooms, some zooa's, a leather stuff like that. I have 2 36 watters in my biocube and it's supposed to be enough to grow softies and even some LPS.

You are going to spend what? $40 for new bulbs? The light I linked you would be a four bulb fixture with moonlighting and it's only $20 more.

New bulbs are about $17 for a pair
