That size tank is a pain to buy lights for, lol. Most lighting fixtures come in 24" and above. There are a few fixtures that come in 20".

Here's a cheap fixture that will allow you to keep a good variety of corals.

Odyssea T5 Aquarium Lighting

Hope that helps...

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