    Are you going to rearrange the bulbs?

    Rearranging will give the tank a slightly different look, but it is all personal preference. I plan on buying ATI bulbs in a couple of months. ;D

    Here's another good thread that I thought was useful, it may help w/ some bulb choices. The thread is kinda long but informative.

    IMHO a simple VHO system is a great bang for the buck. Mentioning VHO likely shows my age in this hobby ;)
