Par 38 options

Looking at a par 38 option over a 120 4x2x2. Thinking 5 of them could work. Anyone have any info on which bulbs are best, any fixtures, or where to buy bulbs at? Thanks for any suggestions.

120g MH

If I do metal halides over my 4' 120 should I do 2 250s or 2 150s? It will be a standard 24" deep tank.
