Cheap is not good for lights on a reef. Ask Darin at Captivereef for details on what you need for your particular tank. He has great prices and great customer service. He'll give you good advice.

COralvue makes some nice retros that are affordable. They are MH or MH and T-5. Hamilton also makes a nice complete hood system that has MH and VHO or MH an PC. Carful with putting a HQI bulb into a fixture designed for PC you could have a fire hazard on your hands!
