you don't have to go super expensive either. I was recommended the Current USA outer orbit by several LFS
. I found a light with more wattage for half the price! Too bad I already had bought my MH
's and t5's. Aquatraders.com has reasonable prices on lights. Even if the ballast's and lights are junk upgrading them will still be cheaper than buying the current usa models. Spend your money on a really good skimmer, return pump, and powerheads.
