I would say if you can fit two of them on the tank go with two.

Definitely two. I retrofitted my 29 biocube and have 4 - 18" bulbs, two 10k daylight, two actinic. Really helps! Did you say you had visited Nanotuners website? Good folks great products. Good quality.

NOOO!! Do not order anything from AquaCON. Their pretty coral packages are just pictures they stole off people, they have a bad repuation of sending you either nothing and keeping your money or sending you dead, sick, dying, not what you ordered, etc. Bad bad place to deal with. LiveAquaria, BlueZoo Aquatics, Dr. Mac are all reputable to order from.

Don't forget Retro Reef! Smile

Can you post a link to the light fixture. I want to see weather the bulbs are HO or not. If the lights are at least as good as PCs, you should also be able to keep Favia, Euphyllia, Pavona, I'm sure there are more I can't think of. I have kept these under very low lights with great results.

You could also check TCMAS. Some of the people that sell frags frequently will ship.

With that light, you can keep most any coral. That does not mean throw any coral that strikes your fancy in there. Make sure that you are meeting all of a corals needs before adding one, not just lighting.
