    MH lighting will give you heat issues without a chiller.
    LEDs will be a great option if you are willing to spend a little cash.

    T5 lighting will also work with the nennie because of your shallow tank.
    Get at least 4 white and 4 blue.

    Great stuff!!!!

    A nennie is a great responsibility, but worth every bit of it!

    Next question: how is your water parameters?
