For a fully-assembled unit I'd go with the Aquactinics Constellation, or the ATI Powermodule (60").

Probably the best fully assembled fixture IMO would be 2 36" ATI Powermodules. A setup like that is going to run you somewhere in the range of $2000 though.

$2000 mind as well go mh

Id go with a 60" ATI Sunpower or Powermodule. You will not notice the 6" short on either side, and they are powerful enough fixtures where you might welcome some areas with lower light. The Sunpowers perform second to only the Powermodule, and are available in widths up to 6 bulbs. The PMs have up to 10 bulbs wide.

What are the dimensions of your tank?

Man, that is a tricky question you asked. I am running a nova extreme pro on my 150 simply because of the price point.

tank is 72x18x24 high.
