75G LED Lighting Question

Greetings All,
I have a 75G (48x18x21) reef tank with sump. Been trolling the threads to figure out the best lighting option, for future corals and such.

LFS guy suggested the Marine Land "Reef capable" LEDs but that seems to be roundly panned here on AA.

Doug and some of the others had sold me on the Ebay Dimmables, but was wondering how to mount them. Are there racks so that it can be attached to the top of the tank? I can't hang them from the ceiling.

Alternatively, I looked at the Hydra 52s, but it looks like I would need two, which is cost prohibitive (trying to stay under $500-600). Radions are a little steep too.

Reef Breeder Photon 48' looked interesting but is out of stock.

Any other suggestions?

You can hang the taotronics pretty easily with a hook you'd hang a plant from on your porch from behind the tank. There are lots of ways to do it, just sometimes takes thinking outside the box to fit your need.
