personally i would go led dimmable and call it a day, the taotronics fixtures are awesome for reefs, you would need 2 of them for a 48" tank though.

Tea, and the bulbs in them last forever. Plus they are much nicer on your electric bill! I got two for $230 on eBay. Both dimmable.

Whatever look you like 14k will be more white or brighter looking. 10k a little more yellow both would work. I like the 14k.
