Ok guys I have my eye on this set of lights. Now as most of you know my tank is the bow front 72 gallon, which is 48 inches long. The lights that I have my eye on are 36 inches long one 175 MH 5500w thats in the middle of the housing and 2-65w PC actinic one on each side. For a total of 300 watts. Will that be long enough and powerful enough? I think it should be ok, but would like to here from the experts. The lights would be right on the tank and it comes with built in fans and I would add one extra one.

CHEERS

with a 4' tank less than 2 MH lights will prolly be dissapointing. The 5500K will be even more yellowish than a 6500K Iwasaki. If the BF tank is more than 18" deep you might as well get a dual 250 and look into the 20KK bulbs like radiums or similar
