    I'm downsizing to a 10 gallon, and would like to keep soft, LPS, and have the possibility of SPS. Im wondering if the 165 watt panels from eBay would be way overkill. I'm watching one at a good price right now.
    What other options do you think that aren't crazy expensive?
    And how about the EVO 18" 10x3watt on eBay

    I'm not one to cut corners when it comes to lighting. If you want to run LED, I'd go with AI Prime.

    Keep soft stuff to start, and get just one light. Then if you want hard stuff later, add a second light.
