P.S.

I am actually thinking of building something like this: Aquarium Lighting for Reef Aquariums: Outer Orbit Pro Series HQI/T-5/LED Lights

Now, I can get all the lights separately A LOT cheaper (my father is an electrical contractor and gets wholesale prices) - however I am not sure how to put it together above the aquarium. Any suggestions.

In regards to the light spectrum, I was reading an article (i'll try to find it) where the guy said 20,000 lumens really stopped his corals from growing. He recommended 6,500 or 10,000. 14,000 if you prefer bluer light, but personally I like whiter light instead.

What can I use for moonlights - are these bad for corals (i.e. don't corals need to rest without light sometime)?
I can't explain the solaris you'll just have to check it out PFO 48 inch 14000K Solaris I5 LED Lighting Fixture, 48in Units > 48in Units
in short, it's awsome. anywho as for spectrum, 10000k is the prefered if you want true white. i use 140000k because i love the blue look (to each his own) 6500k i don't recommend because it's ugly (for one and so your corals will be too) and it's not good for your corals.
