MH lighting questions

I had some questions about MH.. I was planning on adding Dual MH lights to my Already pc lighting setup.. I was thinking about 2x 175watt MH bulbs but also according to the rule of thumb I am borderline needing 250watt mh.. What would be the suggestions..

dual 175watt
Dual 250watt

current setup 6x55watt pc lighting 4x10k ultra daylight and 2xultra actinic

If you everl plan on upgrading to a larger tank, then I would go with the 250s, otherwisw I think the 175s will be fine.

Alright Thx Kevin.. BTW all the Hair Algae is completly gone.. As you have noticed I have been looking at more light demanding Corals and Inverts.. Still havent quite decided if I want to add the cost of MH into the ever increasing cost of the tank..

Thanks Again,
