So I am not the best when it comes to lighting. I am in the Alpha stages of planning my 40 gallon mixed reef, and need some help. I was looking at this one but I'm just not sure if this will cut it. I will be keeping 1-3 anemones as well as some mushrooms, LPS Hards, and polyps. Obviously I won't be adding these all at the same time because of the price. (All added up will probably about 350 dollars). Here is the fixture http://www.marineandreef.com/Nova_Extreme_T5_Aquarium_Lighting_Current_USA_p/rcu01121.htm

I had that exact fixture on my last tank. Had for six months then up sized tank. Work great for those six months no issues had soft, LPS,SPS no issues will need to put your hard corals on top of reef closer to light.
