Aquarium lighting ideas

Just bought a new 40 gallon tank; It did not come with any light fixtures--so, I'm hoping to get some input on possible light fixtures from you guys. .. I don't want to have to break the bank either lol. Does anyone have any advice regarding compact fluorescents? I was thinking maybe something without a giant hood.


P.s. the tank will house cichlids and probably mostly rocks (not much planting)

I think it may be interesting for you to look over this thread to see what some of us done, wonderful solutions for tanks (plants and fish) at very little cost adventures in budget DIY lighting

I say take a trip to the next home store I use all daylight bulbs/ florescent on all my tanks from the home store, you can see the 'results' in my aquarium log here next to the User tap
