personally i would go led dimmable and call it a day, the taotronics fixtures are awesome for reefs, you would need 2 of them for a 48" tank though.

Tea, and the bulbs in them last forever. Plus they are much nicer on your electric bill! I got two for $230 on eBay. Both dimmable.

Whatever look you like 14k will be more white or brighter looking. 10k a little more yellow both would work. I like the 14k.

They are taotronics LEDs. That'll help you find them.

I agree, taotronics are an awesome light for the price. I have three on my 125.

Supermart168 is the seller I bought mine from. Sorry, I use the eBay iPad app, so I don't know how to post a link from it. Dimmable and $230 for two!
