I have a 30g. cube that is 20 inches deep. I am looking for a light fixture for a decent price. Do you think this fixture would have enough penetrating light to keep what ever I want?

Would i have to go to a 6 or 8 bulb fixture?

IMO, the 4 bulb is enough, but getting a 6 bulb would be better. :D

Just make sure that the fixture has individual reflectors. It is possible that the fixture may have only one large reflector and that's no good.

The new nova extreams will be coming out in april. They will have individual reflectors. I received an e-mail from Ike at current-usa 4 days ago. He says that all the same retailers will be carrying them.

If your looking to keep "anything". Look into metal halides. Perhaps a 175w will do you just fine...

If you want to keep anything I would go with this:

Iwasaki 175w 15k bulb
Icecap 175w ballast
Either - Lumenarc Mini Pendant or Lumenmax2 pendant.
