Personally, I would not even go with the highly focused AH Supply kits in this shorter, wider tank. In a 55, a 96w bulb worked fine only because of the extra height and narrow width -- not so with the 50g.

I would go with 5x32w T8 bulbs with an Aquamirror reflector. A combination of 3 ultrasuns (CRI 98) and florasuns (pinkish bulb) will provide very high quality, even lighting without the harshness of the PCs.

The bulbs are cheaper, too. They run about 10-12$ each for the 3 foot long ones.
