Cool Old light system, new bulbs? O.o

Hey, i'm converting my fw tank into a salt water, and i'm trying to save money. could i jus use the light fixture i already have and just buy stronger light bulbs? What type of light bulb should i use? and how much would it cost? It would be for a reef aquarium :) thanks

What is the tank depth? Also, when you say reef, do you have experience with reef systems already? Will you be satisfied with soft corals only, and not get into any of the more difficult light loving species?
