budget frag tank

I had a 10 gallon freshwater kit that i have had running for years and am converting it into a frag tank. Im not new to the hobby but i have bought 2 new tanks in 3 months so money is tight. I been bringing frag mushrooms into my lfs to get in store credit and have found most everything except the light. I am looking for something under 70 that i can get good growth out of rics and smooth mushroom
