Need suggestion for my tank is 36" x 18" wide x 23" deep.

Was wanting thoughts on the following for a mixed reef tank

4 x 39 watt ATI with 1-2 Reefbrites XHO
6 x 39 watt ATI w/o 0-1 reefbrites XHO
Thanks for the input....

Both will work in the long run and are good choices.

Option one is somewhat higher overall costs and much higher startup costs.

Option 2 will be simpler and likely more effective.

Do you want the super blue led sunrise or would you be happy with a pair of 420NM true actinic on the dawn/dusk channel?

Are you okay with the totally flat look of only T-5?

Personally I would go with the 4 bulb with one XHO or a pair of standard reefbrites. With a std 90 gallon (same dimensions but a foot longer) I run a 4X54 ATI (2 coral+ and 2 true actinic) and a BML 20K multichannel bar.
