Depends on what kind of corals you want. 65 watts will give you 6.5 WPG and that isn't too bad for some corals. Some like lower light too. You need to first do your research on what you want, and then pick out the best suitable light.

A coralife 20" Aqualight would work perfectly and is under $100
