Lighting

Well i have a Octagon 40 gallon tank. im looking for lighting advise. First of all this is my first salt water i know a octagon is not a good tank for this but once i have it going its going to also be a quariteine tank.

The widest part of the tank on top is 24 inch. Know i have a coralife 50/50 on the tank. Im looking for better lighting . Does any one out there
have anything for sale? What should i use? Im limited in space.

The tank has 40 pounds live rock. Thanks Duane

go open top (or with some eggcrate)

and use a 175 or 250 watt MH pendant hung from the ceiling ... use a 20k radium bulb

should look awesome
