They make actinic CFLs... May be able to find a cheaper alternative...
Or perhaps LED lighting, 450nm LEDs aren't TOO espensive and they're basically the same spectrum as actinic...
Probably power compacts, Im not real picky. I just want a little above average lighting for a good reef tank, and I will go from there.
