I would strongly suggest against going with the 24" Marinelands. You really want a full length 36" LED for this tank, especially considering LEDs don't "Throw" light like florescents do.

Good question! I dunno. I was thinking of doing two 24" double bright marine LEDs, like so:

But does anyone have any suggestions that won't break the bank? (I'm willing to do LEDs if it means I'll save money of the long run with the life cycle cost of running power to T5s.)
