in wall

My husband and I plan on putting our tank in wall, which will mean the lights will have to go higher to allow room to work in the tank from the top. Will i need to get MH at this point? If so any reccommendations for some pendants or retros. since I already have VHO I can use two or three of those.

Also we wanted to use the tank we had and sell the hood and stand. Would we have better luck buying a new tank and selling them all together?

TIA

hey i had a off the topic question for ya i dont know about lighting, but how did you manage to get your linka to stay alive ?? mine from the local fish store wouldnt eat and eventuly died after two weeks. i think they look really great but i can only keep sand sifter and choclate chip star as of now since i had no luck and i read that linka's generally die because of stress from shipping ?????

I had a blue one that didn't survive (in never moved out of one spot and eventually died ) but about a year later I tried the orange one and it has done great. The first 24 hours it just kinda stayed in one spot but it's all over the place now.
