I've got an AGA 50g (36x18x18) up and running that I want to convert to a high tech planted setup. One thing that baffles me is lighting. I'm trying to keep this project as easy on the wallet as possible. I know the time-tested 36" 2x96w FW Aqualight is a popular unit, but are there any other options I should consider?

Go with the 36" Tek Light and call it a day, pick from four or six bulb options, depending on what your wanting to plant in this thing.. Now if you want to cover this unit there are other T5 retrofit parts, but that will mean building a canopy to house the lamps and ballast. If you go this route don't forget the reflectors.

If you wanna talk expensive look at the maristar fixtures HQI/T5 combo units. I almost gaged on my coffee...
