110g New tank need Lighting help/Info

Greetings all,
Thanks for all the great info. For the past week and a half all I have done is read this forum and look at link posted.

Here is my question I Have a 110g tank 2feet deep. I have a canopy for it also. I need to figure out the lighting I will need to get. I was thinking about 5-6 watt per gallon. I want to get some anemones. I was looking at Http://www.aquariumlight.com/product_info.asp?dbid=373 But not sure if this is any good. It does not say it is electronic. Also what bulbs would be suggested Any advice would help. If I am going in the wrong direction let me know. If anyone could post a complete setup (and links if possible) I would appreciate it. (At least get me in the right direction)

Thanks for all the help.

Mike

Get electronic ballast instead of magnetic. Run much more efficient and stay much cooler.
