I wanted some advice/inspiration for lighting my 150gal. rimless. 48x30x24. I was sold on T5's (ATI PM 10bulb) but have since swayed to x2 250watt MH pendants. I was thinking 2 Lumen Max ELite's with 20k or 14k, on a galaxy dual electronic ballast. One apparent downfall is no dawn/dusk (this is more an aesthetic ritual?). I want an attractive setup because it sits right next to the TV. Any pics would be appreciated. ;)

Not sure what your budget is, but you could get the best of both T5 and MH in a sleek look with a Sfiligoi:

;) True. I was parrtially swayed from the ATI PM when I realized it was much less of a start up cost. $1900 for the Sfiligoi would be a game changer.
