Ok, so I am getting all of the hardware for my new 75 gallon together. All is going well, except for the lights. I can not seem to make up my mind what I want.

I plan on having SPS and Zoas in the tank. And, a clam or two or three.

Can somebody suggest a nice setup... one which is not too expensive?

Thanks a ton!

If you arent running a canopy check out aquactinics on the sponsors page. They have T5 or halide hoods that will do the job for you.

Yeah, I like canopyless tanks. :)

Thanks for the suggestion.

So, I found another post here about lights.

And, it contained a link. Would you buy this setup?

That looks like a nice unit but for around $800, it had better have electronic ballasts. cheers

Electronic ballasts? Dang, I didn't even know there were options. I better read about ballasts then.

Thanks for the tip.
