    coralife pc lunar light

    I am thinking of p/u this fixture,(2-65 watt 10000;s and 2 -65 watt actinics.and lunars. I just want to confirm what type of corals I can keep the names of them I am not as fam. with Lps etc yet.
    Does anyone have this fixture or can you recommend something that will fit on a 72 bow frt (48 inch long) 24deep.
    ie in high power pc or vho's etc. I am lost what i should get. I was going to get something like the aqualight pro or advanced that has mh's but it is only 150 hqi i was told to do 250's mh's then i can grow anything in the tank but i cant find something slimlined so I just want to know if i got the pc would this get me through the first yr or so till I get more experience.

    search for refurbished Current USA products on ebay. I got a $900 4x96W Orbit for $350 plus shipping. Their Outer orbit series includes MH lights with actinics and they have wattages up to 130W per bulb in 4ft lengths. Have been reccomended by other reefers to choose them over corallife for growing more difficult stuff.

    softies and your low light lps should be fine as long as your water perameters are good

    I just ordered same from pets and ponds!

    I just ordered the coralife lunar also,wanted the pro with halides but can`t justify over double the cost.

    You want us to list every you can keep with a certain kind of light? well let me see what i can do, i would stay away from hard to keep species first of all so... here it goes

    http://www.esuweb.com/cardfile.asp?I...lationship=331
    http://www.esuweb.com/cardfile.asp?I...lationship=313

    with either of these two you're set with almost every species out there in your 72 bow, the second one doesnt come with legs i don't think so u have to devise a way to hang it

    i recommend these species for beginners, in order from easy to hard IMO

    softies:
    lobophyturn sp. (ex: devil's hand leather coral)
    sarcophyton sp. (ex: toad stool leahter coral)
    sinularia sp. (ex: cabbage coral)
    capnella sp. (ex: kenya tree coral)
    actinodiscus sp. (ex: mushrooms)
    rhodactis sp. (ex: hairy mushrooms)
    zoanthus sp. (ex: zoanthids)
    Pachyclavularia sp. (ex: start polyps)

    LPS:
    caulastrea sp. (ex: candy cane coral)
    fungia sp. (ex: plate coral)
    Euphyllia sp. (ex: hammer coral)
    trachyphyllia sp. (ex: brain corals)
    tridacna sp. (ex: maxima clam, yea, these are clams... i just thought i throw them in to mix things up)

    SPS:
    montipora sp.
    acorpora sp.


    I would steer clear of SPS and the harder LPS in your first year...

    I checked the instructions, since I am looking at this same setup for a 75 gallon tank, and the second link (The 48" 150 WATT AQUALIGHT PRO) does come with the mounting legs. Here is the link to the instruction manual: http://www.esuweb.com/productinstruc...6316535060.pdf

    Are you sure? Cause the manual states: "Use Aqualight mounting legs (included) to place Aqualight fixture over a covered aquarium". Perhaps this is a misprint. If anyone owns this fixture, perhaps they can clarify....
