Hi all,

This is my first post on this forum and my first 'proper' marine fish tank. I am a complete novice and I will be picking up the tank pictured this weekend. It does not come with a light so I have to purchase it this week.

I need to keep the tank fairly simple so was thinking of getting some clown fish, corals etc.. 

Can anyone recommend a good light sub £200 please? What websites do you guys use to purchase your accessories? Is there a 'amazon' of the fish world :)

Thanks in advance!!

too many choices out there. All comes down to what you plan to keep in the long run. Do you want LED's, do you want T5's? Hybrid?
