LED's are nice but they're usually more expensive and when the lights wear out, you have to solder new LED's in place or replace the whole unit.

You can just add blue moonlight LED's to a T5 florescent fixture. There are many of these available on ebay...............your size tank shouldn't require more than 2 or 3 dual pods.

Many of the moonlight LED's are available in little pods which are grooups of 2 to 4 lights. You wuld only need 2 or 3 pods for a tank that's roughly 30 inches long. The pods can be added to your new light fixture and they'll have a separate cord that way. This will allow you to put the LED moonlights on a separate timer.
