    In truth Art, if you want to keep corals, you need to add at least three more tubes to your lighting. That is an absolute bare minimum and would allow you to keep only low light corals. I see you have already checked out the thread on the Workhorse 7, and that is probably the lowest cost, best route to go. You will also probably want to dump your current hood/canopy and build yourself something to hold your new lights.

    thanks for the suggestion bristleworm.
    I already built the top myself. I didnt think I was that good in carpeting. I just need to find a place where can I buy one of those Workhorse 7 Ballast.
    I went to Home Depot.
    They have different Ballasts with 2 x 110W(philips and some other brands). Wonder if I should go with one of those or search for that Workhorse 7 Ballast. It seems a lot of people are liking it.
    thanks.
