What's your budget? If you want a really nice light go with 2 kessil a360w or 2 aqua illumination hydras. I had an aqua illumination vega that I sold and ended up with 2 Kessils.
AI lights are like Porsche. You get a nice light at already a steep price but then you have to spend more to get it working. For example you would need two railing kits at $69 each and a controller at $80.
Kessil is more like a Lexus. Very nice quality at a reasonable price from a very good company.

Two kessils are like $800 arent they? And two Ai's are about the same too....Thats a really steep price, at least in my opinion. lol Unless of course you have that kind of cash and dont mind spending it on lighting for a fish tank. LOL
But seriously, the tao units are prettymuch the best bang for your buck so to speak. The only thing missing from them is a timer, which you can get at walmart for like $4 each. And of course a way to hang or mount them.
I;ve tried so many different types of lighting, I just invested in my first radion to see if all this high priced stuff is actually worth it in the end. I'm still on the fence though.

I have one on my 20g and it is way more than enough, I'm running mine on about 40% power.
