    I have the Orbit Marine 18 - 24" for my Nano cube (Nuvo Micro-30). I really like the light, particularly its features, but am realizing that it's really not enough light. I have been looking at the Razor Nano, because that seems very popular, but would love some guidance as to what a 30 gallon tank with a lot of various coral species might need. Right now I have a bunch of different polyps (zoanthids), an amazing toadstool, yellow star polyps, a red mushroom, a hammer, some kind of Zenia, and a couple that I never can remember the name of... they're like bushes... a guy at my LFS calls them sea weed. (Starts with a G, hehe... ) Any help will be greatly appreciated! I see some lights now have UV capability... is that something to be considered?

    For your tank I would look at the AI hydra 26. I've seen what they can do in person and I'm a halide guy.
