    aquatraders.com has some 4 bulb sets for a tank that size that would work well. You would just need to replace the bulbs.

    I am pretty sure it will be bright enough but I don't want to steer you in the wrong direction so let me check with some others first. But of course I have to ask the question that will really determine how much light you will need. What do you want to keep in the tank? SPS?
