Equallogic PS6510E fiber recommendations

We have recently purchased an Equallogic PS6510E iSCSI SAN to replace our old PS400E.  We have opted to use the SFP+ fiber ports simply because we have the capacity on our Core switches to accept the 10GigE Fiber connections.

I'm having trouble determining:

1.  What fiber optic cable is preferred (Single vs. Multi-mode).  distance is minial (<50ft).  Normally that would warrant Multi-mode, but not sure if there are device biases to one over the other
2.  What Fiber connectors should I employ on the device and switch end of the patch cables.  We will be plugging into an Extreme Black Diamond switch - 10GbE fiber card

Any help is greatly appreciated
