Anyone running HID over their nanos.

I've got a Mini M and am looking at options for lighting. for what it would cost to get the Mini Solar I can get a 70 or 150 watt MH setup. The bottom of the Light fixture would be 6" off of the waters surface. I've used MH previously over a 20g and also a 150. I really love the look of the MH over a tank. Any opinions or does anyone have any experience? Looking at the Newer Viper models as they have a bigger reflector or the Coralife unit. I would be mounting this to the top of my rack above the tank.

That would be a ton of light over that tank.

I really cant say that I would suggest it at all.

I didn't figure any one would suggest it I was just bored and got this wild hair wondering what would happen if....

I will probably go for the Mini Solar 26 watt for my tank but was wondering...
