Lighting a 48" tank

At 03:48 PM 9/25/98 -0400, Beard, Kelly asked:

What kind of lighting would you recommend for a tank this size?  I guess the
standard dimensions for a 74 gallon are 48 x 18 x 21. 

With a 48" tank, I would use fluorescent as long as the tank isn't too
deep.  They fit well.  I would make a diy hood with 6 tubes.  At 32w each,
that's 200w close enough.
