I'm looking into buying a new lighting system for my aquarium and i want to know what is better, a metal halide lamp or power compact? What are the advantages and disadvantages of both?

Tell us more about your tank. What size is it, what level of lighting you wish to achieve? Unless I had a very large or very deep tank I would personally stick with PC lights. It's normally cheaper, creates less heat, and there is a much better selection of bulbs available.
