I kept a Rose Bubble Tip in my 150 and it split four times! I used a 12-lamp (it is more like a six lamp, it only used 3' bulbs) T5HO Current USA fixture.

how important is lighting at the beginning? Live sand / Rock / fish

I still don't know what kind of lighting i have, I have to look into that. I do know I have two long florescent tubes. lol

You don't have to use any light with jst a fish tank. Its not necessary. So thise flourescent lights are just fine.

Just got my T5 light set up. My tank looks sick. Its easily 5 tones brighter than those crappy ones that came with it. Plus the LED mon lights are awesome for night viewing. Can't wait to get some corals in this thing and see how they do.
