    I have been doing my research on lighting for a ten gallon tank and I'm on a tight budget. This is gonna be for a frag tank. Would this fixture be a good buy? It's a great price and the reviews are good also. Would I be able to keep corals no problem with it?

    I think you would be able to keep anything you want under that in a 10 gallon tank. Might even burn some corals. :mrgreen:

    I'm no expert though, maybe someone else can chime in. For $50 I don't see how you can go wrong though.

    Damn you! Lol just kidding. How did you like it and what were you able to keep under it. Keep in mind mine would be going in a ten gallon.

    I'll call and see when they are getting more. Yay I'm excited. I finally found a light that's affordable.
