This again all depends on what you can afford right now and the look you are going for.

$150 won't buy much. If you look around you might be able to get a single 250w MH retro kit for that price. You'd still probably want actinics though and you'll need them later. To bad you won't buy secnod hand. A friend just sold a pendant 250w complete everything with 2x 65w PC actinics built in for $125. It was a month old and needed cash. That light was about $300 new.

hmm, im not really looking for MH. I want to stick with flourecents to save electricity (please note im not paying for my electricity, my mom is, and at anytime she could end my fish keeping and give everything away to someone else) i was thinking either CF or VHO lights.

You may be able to find a T5 fixture somewhere for $150.
