    There are a lot of VERY NICE units out their and I'm sure the guys/gals will mention which Brand...I personally have decided to look into these...I'm also looking roughly at the same Tank size as you'rs...

    http://cherrylumi.com/board/bbs/board.php?bo_table=eng_product_3

    They are not yet available here ...maybe @bryan knows as I think he mentioned that he would get some, if he can ... I find it's a nice "all rounder" and shouldn't break the bank...

    An ecotech Radion would work perfectly on that size.

    I got mine direct from china for $98 each,$125 delivered to my front door in Auz.
    They are fan cooled 90 watt fittings with 120 degree optics on the old 3 watt cree xr-e diodes over a 600 tank. The diodes are 50/50 blue and white and I keep and grow sps of all colours very easily.
    I bough two from 365sunnyled just in case one fails. From buying them in June 2011.they have not missed a beat and work for all forms of symbiotic and standard photosynthetic life.
    They will make them any way you like!

    eco-tech radions are wicked.
    but if you looking for something awesome that is cost effective manufactured beautifully, and very effective
    i know of an incredible unit that has been imported...120watt dimmable full spectrum blue and white unit with other colours aswell to complete light spectrum and wavelength.
    give us a shout......some sample units arrived and have all been sold and a bulk order is set to arrive in 12 days. if you would like to pre-order/ pre-book these
    i know we at waterboy will stock these as will aquaria, and some other shops;)

    On a tight budget, go for 400mm Reef aquatic Cree unit.
