    If you can't get large heat sinks inexpensively, you can try using square aluminum tubing and running a fan through it. A fan like this: http://shop.stevesleds.com/Cooling-Fans_c11.htm.

    For my FW tank I have used aluminium spirit level that I find at home depot very cheap. Ripped off al plastic and got nice heatsink. Being 1.2 m long each handles 20W of led with no fans at all. I thing it can handle way more actually.
