    Hang it 30" above the sand to start, maybe higher if the corals start losing color.

    I suggest 6 x ATI Blue Plus and 6 ATI Coral Plus.

    I think it will be cheaper online. As for a site I am not sure who ships into Canada from the US or if it is worth it. I don't know of any Canadian websites either. I suggest a thread on Canadian Aquatics websites and see what you get as we have quite a few members from the The Great White North.
