So I might be getting another tank tomorrow. If so my 35 will be my gfs frog tank. They claim it to be a 44 gallon. Haven't seen it yet. Anyways point me in the right direction for VERY AFFORDABLE reef capable lighting.

OK so I drove 60 miles today and got a 38 gallon tank for $25. This is gonna be my new reef tank I'm gonna use my 35 gallon for my gfs fresh water African clawed frog. I'd say I got a good deal it's a pretty nice one.the whole top is open unlike my 35 hex front so more light! Its 36" long 12.5" deep and 20" tall. So I need some reef lighting to penetrate about 18". Any ideas?
