What lights do you have currently over your tank? What is your budget?

Here is a very inexpensive approach to lighting a tank...

Marine depot has a nice LED that would work but the attaching plate is only accepts a 1/4 inch so you might have to modify the tank if it's not rimless. Click on the nano link in my signature the light is on my tank.
