I am in the process of setting up a 90 gl reef tank. I found an excellent marine store, Marine Wharehouse in Tampa, that has been helpful. I am a little overwelmed on the lighting. Galaxy 150/175 watt MH Ballast with Reef Optix retro reflector and 2 175 watt 14K is the recommended lighting. I am concerned about the heat within the wood canopy and elsewhere without a chiller. It seems like the chiller is a must but then I am seeing T5's and compact florescent's that generate less heat. I am curious with the MH and a chiller how much the monthly energy is going to cost. The lighting is certainly confusing on what is the best option.
Otherwise, everything else is pretty simplified.
