Another lighting question

180 gallon tank that will go back together as a FO w/ LR. Lighting budget is about $350-400.00. Here is what I was thinking about. Six 5' VHO's on two of the Hellolights ballasts. Stagger the bulbs a little. This tank probably won't have corals. If there are any, they will be the less demanding ones. It is a customers tank that I will be maintaining, so it will only get real attention every two weeks. I have looked at several sites and priced several different setups including Icecap. I don't see anything else that will give me as much light per dollar as the above including PC's. If anyone has suggestions/comments, you have my undivided attention. Posted question about Hellolights.com in General Retailers Forum also if you've had experience with them. Thanks.
Logan J
