A 210w PC would work fine on a 55 gal. You would also be able to keep LPS corals.

Cheers
Steve

I agree with Steve. What kind of fixture were you looking at? CSL makes a nice setup with moonlight that you might want to look into. It would have 65w bulbs in it so you'd actually have 260w.

Not sure about a used one. You should check the sponsor forum for deals...you might be surprised what you can buy a new one for. For a used one...possibly place a request in the classifieds forum?

ahh just buy a 2x250w MH setup for about 190.00 shipped from Cool touch lighting on ebay and get 2 10k Xm MH bulbs from MarineDepot.com for about 65.00ea
and build yourself a canopy.. All and all With the lighting and bulbs without building a canopy you would be looking at about 320.00 shipped..

HTH,
James
