For lighting in this tank I went with 2x39watt t5ho's with tek II reflectors and a phillips advanced ballast. I picked up the package at with 2 6500k GE bulbs and waterproof end caps. I picked up a 2 foot LED strip, from amazon, that can be dimmed and has 15 different colors as well as white that is controlled by remote. The LED strip will be used as moon lighting and to add shimmer with the white light(hopefully).

Here was the first trial mount of the T5's

Here are the lights installed and wired with the LED strip. Dont mind the wire splices a few wires were too short and one wire I missed while stapling it down and cut it in half

Lit up with no reflectors, LEDS not lit. Ill have to get a pic of that up here.
