I was reading your other thread, you should look into T-5 lights if you don't want the MH. You can keep sps with a strong T-5 setup.

Well, I have been looking and researching, and it always seems someone thinks I don't have enough light. But this is it ...aaarrrrgggghhhh!!! I really like the combination of 3 types of lights, plus I will have the MH I really didn't want again to help with some SPS. And if they don't do well, I will just move them to the top of some rockwork or something. But here is the real reason.....the price on this system just couldn't be beat for brand new. Even 1/3 this wattage on T-5's cost more. So I think I will be buying this light without a doubt! FYI it is only $399 in case anyone else may be looking!!!! I still want some more feedback on what you guys think I can have in this tank under these lights! But figure this IS the light I will have!!!

I found it on Ebay actually, after I had already bought the other light I was asking questions about. So now I will have 2 seperate 48" new fixtures. Oh, and the LR (what was left) went with the tank. I sold my 210gallon about 2 weeks ago, and the people came and took it all away today! Here is the link to the light fixture for $399 in case anyone wants to check it out, I think he has about 6 left for now:

You can keep any high light corals in the upper two thirds of your tank and keep the lower third for lower light SPS, LPS or softies. It sounds like a nice light with a good price. Got a link?

I'm partial to VHO actinic, but I hear the others are getting much better.
