    Just got a 240 gallon saltwater tank(8ft x 2ft x 2ft) and am trying to figure out lighting for it. Its going to be a mixture of fish/live rock/corals. I found these 36 inch light hoods with 6 t5 ho lights and 12 leds on side with controller. Didn't know if 2 of these mounted under hood of aquarium would be enough lighting for corals and fish... Here's the link for those lights. Any ideas would be appriciated. Thanks

    What sort of corals do you wish to keep?

    I want to have a variety of corals. I dont have specific ones in mind yet, but i know that eventually i want to have them in my tank. But i dont know if these lights i posted would allow any or come corals to grow as well as good for the fish.
