I have not checked prices in a while on lighting but I would think that the PC
and T5 is going to run you more money to buy then a VHO
You could get away with 2 ballasts and run 4 VHo
bulbs on them, 2 Super actinic and to white. This is enough for soft corals also if you want to go that way later.
I like the URI bulbs best...
How long is that tank? the VHO
do come in 6', 4' bulbs
For a fowlr
you do not need intense lighting so if you wanted to go even cheaper you can get some NO
lighting for the tank. You just won't get good light penetration deep in the tank but it will be fine for a fowlr
