    Hey everyone,

    What's everyones thoughts on the lights below:
    http://fluvalaquatics.com/us/saltwater/aquarium-lighting/series/marine-and-reef-2/

    I know they're not super high end, but I am slowly trying to transition into reef. Looking for something that's at a good price range, can sit right on top of the tank, and can allow me to keep beginner/easy corals. I would rather buy a high end light setup when I'm prepared to actually utilize its full function.

    For the price I would recommend spending a little bit more and getting aqua illumination prime they are $200 and proven to grow corals.

    Any specific model for a 72" length tank?

    Doesn't look like the fluval sea makes one for a 72" so you might need two of those anyway. They look like they might be able to allow you some low light corals. And the hydra 52 are quite expensive.

    True, I am aiming for 36" 2 strips. I don't mind paying a bit more, but I dont want to go all out if its not gonna be used entirely. Plus having extra lights as I upgrade makes excuses to get more tanks :) lol
