What you guys all for got its not just good lighting.It seems that corals also need water. And not just yellow water either but that clear stuff like you see in your toilets. Only the best for my corals and I'm adding two more candles for three times the amount of light :D

:happy: Lighting should be the most important element in the growing corals.Majority reef aquariums contain corals that are photosynthetic and depend on proper illumination for their growth.Most of the symbiotic corals derive their nutrition from the products of photosynthesis. So,lighting is an important decision you need to think before you make a decision of setting up your coral reef aquarium journal.Identify which corals you are going to keep,as soon as you know what sorts of corals you intend to keep then choose the lighting that is most suitable for it.
Besides the illuminating equipment,water quality also very important,no matter how well your lighting system over your tank is,if there are yellowing agents, wastes and other dirt gathering in your water,the light source cannot reach the bottom of your tank.
There are some popular lighting system available:
T2,T5,T8 and incandescent,fluorescent,LEDs and so on.
Personally,I'd prefer the LED aquarium lighting systems,for they are more pure.We can choose a certain spectrum for our corals.
