The 156 watt (36" x 8") will be a better investment.

AndI would forget the urchin.

The urchin is fine, but I honestly wouldnt do it. They get HUGE.

I actually have three sets of the 36" 72W lights of that you just posted. I can grow pretty much whatever I want, and I have seen growth on everything. I love them, and I get a lot of variety in the bulbs because they are T5.

the bangaiis will most likely kill the weaker of the 3 in time. in the wild large groups of these fish is common but in tanks i suggest a mated pair. try to find an already TANK BRED pair. this is your best bet for breeding.

as for urchins, alittle aqua putty stuck with a few toothpicks works best.

what type of clown fish can I get? What invertibates can I get? How many invertebrates do I get?

Can I use tap water, if I use a decloranator?

Clowns: Most are fine, but I would personally stick with Percula or Occelaris. They are the most common, and least aggressive.

Inverts: Shrimp, Snails, Hermits, Urchins, etc. Amount depends on what you get.

Tap water: NO. You need RO/DI water.
