New lights

I am finally getting close to the stage where I can put coral in my new 50g tank. So far I have just been using a desk lamp as a light for the fish but I need to get something that can sustain corals. I really want Radions but they are way out of my price range. I don't need all the fancy stuff you can do with them so does anybody know of an LED lighting system that you can get for under $200?

Thanks in advance.

By the way, I am willing to build something for it if it drives the price down.

I have a single one of these over my 60g cube tank

Amazon.com: TaoTronics Aquarium Coral Reef Tank White Blue LED Lamb Grow Light 120W: Patio, Lawn & Garden

I got mine from amazon but they are cheaper on ebay if you look.

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

Depends what you want to keep coral wise and how high you hang it I guess.
