Zoos and shrooms will do well with the two t 5s. Shop around you will find lights that will have mounting brackets for the back half of your tank keep the back opened the lights will be able to handle the moisture. Decent light will be around $100 bucks or lil more. Like your tank I have a 75 with two t5s and zoos and shrooms do excellent same style as yours!

Mine had a total glass top that I removed. By removing your back section the light will have plenty of room. You could make a simple rectangle screen top to keep your fish in. Sometimes we tend to go overboard and take the fun out of it! Don't cut any support that was factory install. It was free that's a great price.

Cont.. They work fine for softies pylops and shrooms. Nice reflected shield for more light. The deep blues come in two dif wattages make sure it's for reef. I looked at a 48" one for 85 bucks then I was told that was for fish only $169 for reef. I really like the aqua sun And you can always slip a led next to it.

I was looking at your tank the mounting brackets for the aqua sun are 8 1/2 inches wide. They might be to big in that aspect the light opens towards the back that could also cause a problem for any maintenance
