Thanks for those links Florida Boy. I also was doing some research of my own. I think I will go with the 30 inch, 36 watt T-5 lamp. I feel that this can provide me with the saturation point for low light and moderate light corals. Would you agree?

EDIT: So, the light available at the LFS are NO. I will be ordering the Nova Extreme T5 HO fixture. My only question is do I buy the 30" fixture with two 24 watt bulbs (10K and 460nm actinics) or the fixture with four of these (2x 10K and 2 actinic) bulbs?
