What size tank?
55 gallon. 48" long. About 21" tall. I don't have any corals yet. Tried a while back but none would ever open up. Think my tank was to new. Only 1 1/2 months in. Now about 6 months in. Just want some zoas and things like that. I have a 4 bulb T5 and need bulbs. Don't know if I should get some ATI bulbs or go LED.
Ok, so same tank as me. I guess if you are up for it, I would try one of those fixtures (I would not buy two) and start with some Zoas. However I find them to be my most temperamental corals, and so may not be a true "test". I would say you could try a mushroom or ricordea as well. If you find they are doing well, try another lower light coral. From there if you find you want to get into SPS, spend some money on a new light at that time. But the one you posted should be fine for lower light ones as I mentioned.
There is a guy about an hour from me selling two Ocean Blue Kessils 150 with the tank mounts for 300.00. If he has them on the tenth I'm thinking about getting them.
