Thats a nice lighting system. 1 150W HQI MH bulb with 2 X 65W PC bulbs and then 2 X 1W moon lights. The moon lights, PC bulbs and MH are all on their own ballast and plug so you can get real night, dusk/dawn/mid-day lighting by staging when the different bulbs come on.

I would check around of course to see if you can find something equivlent for less.

there arent any pics of the unit. I have a 65gallon and I think an upgrade would do the tank well. what else would be good beside the aquapro setup?

I think the link descrpition mentioned a pendant. That would be a fixture that would normally hang down from the celing or some platform suspended over the tank. For a 36" long tank I dont think that would provide even light over the entire lenght.
