Too much light?

I have a 20gallon that I'm going to convert. I've been looking at my lighting options. I will eventually want to move to a reef system. I was thinking of getting the Custom Sea Life Moon-Lite 24", 2x65W. Is that too much light? Should I go for the Custom Sea Life Moon-Lite , 2x40W?

BTW, are the moon-lites that much different or better? Why does custom sea life have another model without the moon-lites for $100 more? I believe its just the ABS power compact model.

The 2x65 is a great option and will give you approx 6.5 watts per gallon. You will be able to keep most anything with that kind of light...

You can do much better $$$wise IMO, by DIYing your lighting..

You have any suggestions on some good places to get DIY kits or parts?
