lighting suggestions for a 10 gallon reef

Now that my monster 210 is gone (no more 30 gallon water changes...yaah), all the fish (except my clown) are at the Cleveland zoo, I am ready to start a mini reef in my 10 gallon.
Any opinions on lighting systems for a small tank (good or bad)?
My wife thought I was done with this hobby....HA!! :P
I have my 40 gallon breeder tank to tackle yet too. 8)
TIA

I used a 2x32 DIY PC fixture for mine when it was up. You could do a MH 150 pendant if you want to go all out though

I agree! I think a 70-75w DE MH over a 10g would be really interesting and far from the norm. Maybe an SPS, zoo, Crocea clam tank..?
