I have a 48" x 15" (60 gallon tank) and a $200 budget for lighting it up.

What do you think is the best I can get for that price? PC, VHO or T5? What kind and wattage? any suggestions?

What's the best I can get for $200 (Reef Lighting)

IMO opinion if you are going to look at it that way you are throwing $200 into the wind if you plan on being in this hobby for very long...

UNLESS
you are open to buying used stuff
check out the classifieds here and at RC. $200 can get you set up just fine with some 250 mh with new or newer bulbs.......

they dont suck the juice like 400's but the are sufficient enough that you wont ever come across something you cant buy or keep becasue your lighting isnt adequate.,......
