Lighting question

Which is a better Mh style to get the mogul base style or the HQI style. I am currently looking at a set up that has 2 150w HQI Mh with 2 36w PC and 2 55w actinic. What are your thoughts? By the way it will be going on a 90gal tank.

I like the mogul bases myself. They are cheaper than the HQI. You also need a separate UV shield in front of the HQI bulbs whereas the the glass envelope that covers the moguls *is* the UV shield.

On the other hand, the amount of light emitted from the HQI's is a bit higher. But I don't think it warrants the higher price of the bulb IMO.
