    Lots of good options out there. You may try to find a used kessil A360w tuna blue. Iíve been pleased with them! Most options are good anymore.

    I know Reefkoi just got his new LEDs in yesterday and he has them on his tank at reefstock. They look great too and wonít break the bank!

    When I bought my 60g cube system it came with MH lighting and it looked great. But it put off way to much heat and used a lot electricity. I ended up switching out to a Radion XR30W 4G Pro. Not cheap by any means, but I like the low temps, low energy consumption and all the lighting options it gives me. I don't have any SPS, so I can't personally attest to how well they do under it, but many others do with good results.

    You can often find the older 3Gs at good prices these days used.
