Most corals sold in the aquarium trade have some kind of lighting requirement due to the fact that they are photosynthetic. Varying from "low-light" soft corals such as mushrooms and green star polyps which may only need one or two vho or power compact lamps to intense light requiring clams and acropora which need a strong light source such as metal halide. Newer to the hobby are LED's which have many options, some of which can be controlled or dimmed to meat almost any aquarium's needs.

Below are a list of aquarium lighting options in LED, vho, power compact, T5, and metal halide that can be combined and configured to fit the needs of any reef aquarium.
