    My choice MH's. Great light penetration. Can be supplemented with T5's to change colouration ;)

    A very WARM Welcome to MASA ml! Please create a new thread in our "New Members" forum and tell us more about yourself, your tank/s and your hardware/life stock!
    Many thanks!

    BTW: lighting depends on what you want to keep. Metal halides are awesome, but you can achieve great coloration in SPS corals, with only T5 globes too.... but many T5 globes, that is.
    Whether you go for Metal halide and/or T5's depends on the depth of your tank's water.... and at what level your corals are living.....
