Got my 75 and a 30 long sump from ray. Just waiting until I move to get things rolling. Going to start my stand soon. Looking for some koralias, mag 5, and some jagger heaters now=):dance:

Are you going to go with the evolutions?
Did you decide on the brand of lights?
Everyone seems to have great success with the TEKs

They have a 8 bulb 48" light that would be perfect.
$374 at bulk reef supply. That is a pretty good deal. You could grow anything with that light and because there is 8 bulbs you can use many different K of bulbs and basically get any color blend of light you wanted. Check out that suspension kit as well that was a pretty cool addition. I'm pretty sure they have individual reflectors with will increase the light output.

The even better light would be ATI but for that the $$$$s go up pretty quickly.

Later

Yea two or three koralia evos 1050. Wanted some vortechs but lmao way too expensive. Between coralvue, tek, and good ole nova.. I want tek's but i want legs to put on top of tank.. Dont want to hang them extra cost and i dont think i would like that. But well see=)

The vortechs are expensive but they are worth it, they were some of the best powerheads I have ever had. I know you are wanting the legs but I would stick with a fixture that has individual reflectors. You are going to want that to be able to penetrate the light further into the water.
