Just getting an idea of what my best option would be. I have been considering the JBJ formosa desktop with 2x24 watt bulbs.

My other option is one of the many AH supply confgurations. I already have the 2x55 kit and love it so far...just didn't know if another recommendation might be in order for the 10g.

I will be using CO2 and ferts. I so like high light plants. I also like to get reasonably even lighting.

Any advice would be appreciated.

you could always go to hello lights and get a 96watt PC setup for 100 bucks or so...thats what I did with my 10 gallonsaltwater tank (although I'm starting to want to make itplanted but I'd have to buy non 50/50 bulbs as I hear actnic is pointless for anything other than marine)
