Anyone use these lights?
 
I plan on upgrading my lighting once i start getting corals in the tank. Has anyone used any of these lights?

Depends on the corals you want to keep. If you go into the small polyp stoney corals and the clams you'll need halides mixed with your T5s. If you go with just soft corals and maybe a few large poylp stony corals, just the T5s would probably work for your tank.
But if you want all options in your lights, go with something like this: http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...3&pcatid=12113

What size is the tank? Depth of the tank will determine what you need, and if the tank is shallow enough there should be no reason why HO T5 shouldn't be plenty to handle any of the high light animals. If the tank is too deep, then yes, MH would be about the only option. Can you post tank dimensions?
