10 gallon nano tank lighting?

Anyone know where I can get a cheaper light for a SW nano? I'm seeing many of them that are around $125, and that's just way too expensive. I was thinking about keeping some low light corals.

I'm having the same issue finding lights for my 10g tanks. It seems everything is 24" or alot less like 16" for a refugium. The only ones I've really seen are the LED fixtures and they are pricey and to me, unproven.

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

I found a few on amazon, for around 60 bucks, that seemed like the best call to me, The LED's confuse me, I should probably just stick with what I know =)

I'd vote for t5's over the LED's. More bang for your buck in my opinion.
