    welcome robert, great to have you join:)

    what size tank are you starting off with? Have you gotten a sump and any equipment yet?

    No air pumps or air stones. Aeration provided by skimmer.

    On a 4 foot, should be T5 54W. 4 to 6 globes, depending on the depth of the tank, and what livestock you want. SPS and one day (like in 9 months) an anemone, then you must go Metal Halides.
    So you have to answer that first. If tank 450 - 500 or less, and softies like Zoa, leathers and odd LPS, then T5's should be ok.
