I cant decide whether or not to get the JBJ compact lighting for $200 bucks off of ebay, or halides. Can someone point me in the right direction?

for a 55 gallon? 260watts isn't alot... I'd think for softies it would be ok, but alot of people use two, 250watt (or more) metal halide pendents on tanks that large.

softies and some lps would do ok under that lighting. if your shooting for sps, clams and anemonies go with the halides, keep in mind that switching now is a good idea as you will have another algae outbreak from the halides. Make sure you use ro/di or at least distilled water as the halides will quickly cause outbreaks of nuscance algae if you use tap water or plain bottled water
