Dingus' 1.7 Gallon SPS-Dominate

Hey everyone -- it's been so long, and I'm guessing the nano reef lighting scene has changed a little.

Any recommendations on lighting an sps-dominant 1.7gallon? I'm planning this little tank as a sequel to an old jbj picotope.

Options thus far:
- Kessil a160
- Par30

I have no idea which par30 bulb is the best. Any help appreciated

For the picotope? Started with 2 9w 50/50 pc's.
Upgraded to a 120w dimmable led panel, hung 34" above tank.

these may work for you;
http://www.amazon.com/Galaxyhydro-Sa...dp_o_pC_nS_ttl
or this one;
Amazon.com : ABI LED Aquarium Light Bulb, 12W (Royal Blue 450-470nm + Cold White 15000K) : Pet Supplies
not sure if the wattage is enough for you though.

I have the Galaxyhydro 165 watt unit and have been very happy with it.
I'm assuming it's the same LED's (running at 1 watt) and optics in the small version
