With all the reading I've done I think this is going to be the light I go with for now. I'll be doing a full custom diy rig down the road.

I don't understand much about this stuff as I'm just getting started but I ordered these: http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&id=171714245533&alt=web
And plan to have Doyle adjust the spectrum for me in the not too distant future. I'm very happy with them for now tho!

I considered those as well but they won't fit my hood.

I have the 24" pro. And it is good for the price and used it until I got the hydra 52 so depending on the depth and width of your tank it did grow corals.

Can you cut the top of the hood and make a lip for them to sit on? That's what I did.

You can see them sitting on top of the hood. I added a metal bar with latches for easy removal to hold them in place when I open the hood.

It is kinda hard to see but I just used a 1x2 to make the lip they sit on.

Nope. No space. I even used a tape measure to be sure.

I do like the way this looks, if I had the space up top with the existing hood i'd go for it!

I have that exact light. I have been running it on a 10g, and now a 20g. I would give it a 5. The remote is nice, you can do any setting you like. The ramping and moonlight are also nice. I don't bother with clouds and lightning. I think it freaks my fish out...lol. I prob would not buy again. It is under powered for corals I believe. I have an SB reef light (higher end **** box), and a Marsaqua that Doyle upgraded for me...both are great. The Current Orbit is pretty streamline, if that is what you are needing at this time.

Underpowered for corals is my take on that light
