Lighting help

I just got a 55 gallon tank and have a prizm deluxe skimmer, a odyssea canister, and all i need now is a good lighting system. Metal halide is a little to much on the pocket book. I have 35 pounds of live rock and want them to thrive and have good growth. i am thinking of going with high compact in this setup
4-65 WATT BULBS
2- DAYLIGHT 12K AND 2 TRUE 03

I use the same setup/lights on my 55. They are nice lights.

MH has really come down quite a bit. You should PM Darin with Captive Reefs about his retro MH kits for under $200. Then again, it really depends on what you want to keep in the tank.

I LOVE my Coralife PC lights (see my signature). After I got them, growth on my LR came back with a vengance! I just got some yellow polyps and they're doing great, too.
