That one is more than the nova extreme pro! I found a website selling the nova extreme pro for only 280 something (not including shipping). Still, that beats out any other price I have seen for them by an average of 30 bucks....

The link that i posted is an Eight Bulb, though, as opposed to a six bulb. And it has Moonlights.

Oh, well then!! lol. Looks like a great deal then. Aren't the moon lights just for aesthetic appeal?

They help display the nocturnal habits of the creatures, and also provide a more "natural" nighttime setting for the reef creatures...

That being said, I have read that corals and other photosynthetic animals in the aquarium do better with at least an hour of complete darkness.

Okay. Would there be anyway that I could replace a bulb in the nova extreme to make simulate a moonlight? I think there are only two switches on there, so that probably wouldnt be a good idea. 2 swtiches controlling 3 lights per switch :/.

The moonlights are a different kind of light altogether. You can buy seperate nightlights, like the ones that I use. Current USA Lunar Link

Do you know how many I would need for a 36 inch tank? I read that they can be combined so that more than one powercord is not needed as well. If anyone has experience with these I would appreciate some input on them.

I used to use two on my 36" tank. That was enough to light it up.
