    I'm guessing that's a 65 gal. tank, 130w would be the minimum
    As I get older I find myself thinking about the hereafter - I go into a room and then wonder what I'm here after.

    Go with the 96w. The higher the intensity of the light, the greated the light penetration. Since you have a 40g high, I would want to make sure the light can reach the bottom of the tank.
