Nanook I use 2 150w 20k MH's over my 500 and it REALLY makes the fronts 'pop'. They don't mind the light at all, they are active and go about their daily business no different than when I had LED's over the tank that were dimmed way down to a degree that I thought would make the fronts happy. The only problem was my eyes weren't happy! What's the point of keeping these gorgeous animals if you can't truly appreciate them in all their glory!

I've got four VHO waterproof endcaps and an Icecap 660 in the canopy centered over the tank. I can use normal output or VHO easily. I'll try them first and see how they look I guess. I have plenty of metal halides if that is the way to go...

Is your tank 8 foot in length too!

No, it's 6ftx4ft so the 2 MH's work. If it were 8ft I woulda used 3 fixtures.
