I would think MH. PC won't penetrate for that depth as good as a MH, would it?

And if you really insist on cheap - www.aquaticlight.com $75 mh kit (gives you a 4300k bulb and no reflector, but you can get a 10000k later) - several people on this site give it a good word...

hey half the fun is dreaming it up!

OK, found a CURRENT 40w 20" SATELLITE AQUARIUM STRIP LIGHT REEF RD (Current USA Satellite SunPaq Strips feature a unique 10,000k Daylight & 460nm Actinic bulb combo paired with LED lunar lights) pretty cheap and with my 75 watt (equivalent 1100 lumens) daylight (6500k) light I think I might be in line with your (forums) parameters for setting up a reef style tank... What do you think?
