150w or 250w de MH for 19" water depth for sps?

150w or 250w de MH for 19" water depth for sps?

Just wondering on what you guys would go for. As i could get some 150w downlighters, which i think would look smart. Or get some 250 watt units.

Also whichever one you think would be best, how many would you go for in a 7 x 2.5 wide x 19" water depth.

Thanx

Andrew

well i am now thinking of using 4250s and then 8 150s (instead of actinics). And as the tank is cut into four becuase of the three cross beams. Each section will have 2 150s and 1 250. The 250 will be in the middle have a 10k bulb in it, and then the 150s will be one at the fron and one at the back. One will have a 20k and the other a 14k bulb, and this will change from front to back along the 4 sections. This way each section will have a 10k, 14k and 20k bulb on it so the corals should get a good variety of light
