Any suggestions for what i should use? Something hanging from the seiling i think would look Nice. The tank is going to be placed by a window so i can let it have some sunlight if i want.

Yup still using the 70w, seems to do the trick. Obviously it depends if you are going to add co2 or not, but I know people with similar size tanks running T5 strips, 150w halides and 36w Kessil LEDs. Most people make a DIY frame out of curtain rail or similar to hang their lighting from.
