If money were no object......

Ok, if money were no object...had tons to burn. What would your ideal
lighting be for a 175 gallon bowfront Oceanic tank? Yes, it would need reef lighting for corals, clams whatever a person could ever want to put in it.

It would look something like this:

Hmmm, ok I'll assume it's 6ft in length, and about 24"-30" in height.

So I would probably go with 3 X 400W 10K (Ushio or Aqualine Bushke) with spider light reflectors mounted perpendicular, and supplament with 2 X 165W VHO actinic.

YA, Kevins idea sounds good to me.

Then I would write a check to pay off my credit cards.

Which store on the net has the best price on spider reflectors? I would like to get a pair of them for my 250w halides.
