    Hello All! I apologize if there is already a thread about this, i am new to the site. Please direct me if so.
    I've been in the saltwater cult for about 3 years now, and I have recently moved to a 29g tank. I'm running an old kessil A80, along with a nondescript 24" bar light, and im finding that it's not powerful enough in my 18" deep tank. I'm looking for lighting suggestions for a budget, and any options that you all are selling! Thanks for the help!

    Welcome to the forum!!! I'm a fan of T5, the ATI fixtures are hard to beat.

    What do you want to keep? Most lights will kept most stuff, but if you have a good idea, some will do a better job than others.

    SB Reef Lights or Reef Breeder lights are a good choice for lights on a budget :)

    I have been considering a T5, but am unsure about brands and bulb options. Any suggestions for a 29g tank? 30"L x 12" W x 18" Depth. I am low on the funds at the moment, but would love to make my corals happier.
