it all depends on what you want to keep in your tank. that will determine the lights you want. dont got the cheep way out you will end up just upgrading and upgrading wasting money>

For most soft, LPS and some types of SPS; a 4x96w PC or 4x110w VHO would do nicely for a 75 gal tank. I am not up on the VHO manufatures but I have a Custom Sea Life an a Coralife PC set up. Personally, I prefer Custom Sea Life.

If you want to be completely unrestricted (all SPS types and clams), then I would suggest 2x250w MH with some actinic fluorescent supplimentation.... MH intensity greatly depends on the height of the tank as welll as how far the hood must be suspended unless incorporated into a canopy. Do not think in terms of watt/gal.
