I like the performance and color of ATI bulbs, use them over most of my tanks.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

For such a tall and deep tank i would either get an 8 bulb light fixture or consider LED's. The led's will cost almost the same as a new fixture with good bulbs. Alot of people are getting these on ebay, I got mine off amazon but paid more lol
