Best lighting for a 90 gal lr only tank

What is the best lighting for a 90 gal live rock only tank. Are the power compacts or the metal halide better. And what type of wattage should i look for. Also I saw Coral Life 10,000 K Very High Output 110 Watts

Very High Output 10K Lamp

High Intensity lamp with strong emmisions in the blue spectrum simulating deeper ocean enviroment.

Ideal for all marine aquarium, reef tank and fresh water aquariums where a deep water effect is desired.

Emmision spectrum strong in the Blue and Red regions which supports the photobiological process of marinee algae and fresh water plants.

Promotes the growth of zooxanthellae algae, essential for the growth and well being of all photosynthetic corals and invertebrates.

Long Lasting: Effective for up to 10,000 hours

are these also effective?

Since this will be a FOWLR, lighting is a preference. I too would go with VHO just in case your FOWLR turns into something else later, as most people will tell you.

How much is that going for?

I got 4x65 PC 10k/actinics for under $300 not too long ago.

I have a 110g and it's only a couple watts/g but the coralline on my LR is growing like mad.
