I need to run lighting to multiple tanks. What would be most effective and cost effective. I have 10 48" tanks.

Are you planting them, breeding, display?

I've got a 40b with a $10 48" dual T5 Wal-Mart shoplight using 6500k bulbs and I've got good growth for low light plants, but if it's just for lighting the tanks this would be hard to beat at about $17 with bulbs.

I would think something similar to the attached, but the length of the segments would have to be custom to fit the layout. These are T5 shop lights that were mounted on racks running 10s-55s.

The supplies are all available at any big box hardware store or electrical supply. If you aren't experienced with electrical work, I'd strongly suggest having a professional do the work. Safety first.
