I am planning for a SPS dominated tank, size 90x50x50 cm.
I am looking for a good light with suitable price for me to start.
My question is: May i start with the Hybrid Aquatic Life with only 4 ATI T5 bulbs, without any LEDs?
Thank you very much. Any answer will be helpful for me.

Just buy a amazon t5 fixture and throw bulbs in it.

Yes, you can. For a smaller tank, 4 bulb T5 is often enough light on their own. The light from 4 T5s is no joke.

FYI for those thinking of helping, that is about a 36x24x24 tank.

Sure, you can start with that.

For a 50cm (20") wide SPS tank, I think you'll more light than the 4 bulbs eventually. So, the 4 bulb hybrid or a 6 bulb T5 only.
