To bring out the best in your corals, use a Mh 250w (for the tank depth, but to bring out some funky colours, use a pure blue actinic before and after your mh lights. (i.e. switch the actinics on for an hour bofore your mh are on and leave the on fro an hour after the mh are off.)

No Renanchen - moonlights are VERY VERY low wattage (usually blue) lights. I have found that blue LED's seems to work the best.

Have a look at ScubaNinja's thread - you will see his LED moonlights he has made!
