Going for a massive tank (well compared to my previous) and a bit confused as to which lighting to go for. The tank is 30" deep, 64" long and 25" wide.

Going by the Watts Per Gallon rule of 2-2.5W/gallon I'm looking at 380-475W.

That's a lot of wattage and I'd like to be as energy efficient as possible without compromising on light output and quality. Are LED good enough yet? Would T5 or MH be better?
