This fixture would work good http://www.catalinaaquarium.com/prod...28eb4ee08e5b42 even though it isn't the new streamlined looking fixture, it's in your budget and should be plenty of light for you. You could use one bulb with a midday burst if you wanted. It all depends on how bright it really is.
Ah, I didn't even see the link. Yeah this one looks better.
Since it comes with one 10000K and one Blue Actinic would I request for a 6,500K bulb instead of the blue?
