lighting and other questions?

Hey everyone, I have a 55gal with DSB, and LR. I just bought a fighting conch, was that a good idea. It's eating my cyano and diatoms though. But anyway, I was looking at a 4-65 watt PC, or making my own canopy and getting MH and actinics. I want to keep some pulsing xenias, squamosa clam, open brain coral, maybe a kenya tree coral and some others. I am going to get a skimmer first, but MH lights are expensive everywhere I look. I was looking at retro-fit kits to mount in the canopy, any better ideas. The LFS told me I would be alright with the PC, I would have to place the corals in certain depths for the light they require. Any advice appreciated! Thanks!

squamosa clam
Go with the MH and VHO actinics. Drop the clam from your list and you can do with the PC bulbs. Thats my opinion.

Squamosas are the least light dependant of the giant clams, and I think they can be kept under the PC lighting.
