I plan on tearing down a 10g fw and going sw. I plan on having only 1-2 fish but I want to go coral, live. what lighting is good. could I use regular flourescents, if so what kind. I can't spend a ton of $$$ just on lighting, so if there is an inexpensive way, please let me know, thanks.

Thers no inexpensive way to get around lighting. But for a 10 gall you could go with maby power compacts and stick with leathers, mushrooms, and polyps. Also with this being your first sw tank I would really suggest reading reading and more reading. The smaller the tank the more the parameters can change more rapidly. Nanos are a lot more touchy then a big tank.

hey. I have a nano reef too and power compact is a plus. BUt if you want to kinda save some money on power compact. Instead of paying 50 -80 bucks for power compact. just go buy a nano cube. 12 gallons. it bought mine for 100 bucks plat. no tax. I believe fish store buy them for 65 dollars a piece. So haggle if you could. ...
