a 4xT5HO fixture suspended above your tank

adjusting height adjusts intensity

IMO this one: http://www.catalinaaquarium.com/stor...oducts_id=1638

You have the option of running 1, 2, or 3 bulbs. Between that and the option of suspending the light over the tank to raise and lower as desired, you pretty much can't get much more flexible in terms of light levels.
