If you want lots of intensity throughout the tank then a 6 bulb IC retrofit would be an excellent choice. If you want a little more flexibily and and the ability to place lower light corals on the ends of the tank then a 250w MH placed 10-12 inches above the surface would work well. I have a 250W MH over my 30 breeder frag tank and it gets pretty good coverage. If you were to use a Lumenarc type refelctor you'd get even better coverage.
