"It can only support one bulb, so maybe I will need to get a new lighting system all together?"

Actually two bulb hood system, some ppl have mushroom, anemone and corals, it is very beautiful when the JBL marine blue is turn on at night, becos u can see some green luminous light from the coral and anemone whereas for fish they dun really bother jus need a bright light to reduce stress so tat they are not scare to hide.

Because tat's d fish natural instinct they sense danger when the water is dark without proper lighting.

That's why it is normally recommended for brighter lighting, also it benefit the corals and anything wiv life.

Devong, here is a nice reef fixture for your tank (30") that you may want to look at:

Again, thank you to both, I will definitely purchase that lighting, will measure in the morning to make sure it will fit. Will better lighting also help my LR grow coralline algae. Right now it is still greyish white, with a couple light light green spots, and some brown spots(BUT the brown is like a dust brown) most likely the sand my d goby kicks up, will this stop coralline algae from growing?

Sorry to go off topic of the thread.

You can either go for chiller, or 1 hp air cond, as electricity consumption are equal, well if u have 1 hp additional wall mounted air condition, definitely it will benefit the people as well.

Actually u shud set a timer, so taht the aircond will be on on a specific time to make the water cool.

Well then, a chiller may be a good investment for now and years to come. Try finding a used Nano Chiller, so you dont have to pay a full $300+.

that lighting you recommended, does it have that blue haze that people recommend? Also where can I get one that has the stands that attached to the sides of the tank?
