Lighting

Would this be good lighting for a 75gal reef tank? I will hopefully get some corals, or mushrooms, anomies.

That would give 3.5w per gallon. You should be able to keep some soft corals with that lighting.

What would be another option? I only have about $125-$150 to spend. I know the lfs store sells some other lights but they are just way outta of my budget (like $300 or so for the cf)

That is an amazing price for that. Would I be better off getting www.ahsupply.com pc lights that would give me 240watts for $130 or that light? I have a 55g fowlr, and I am planning on eventually getting some anemones/soft corals.

I'm pretty sure those are made by jebo. I would check it out and do a search on jebo, Jebo lights are cheap but unreliable and the actinic bulbs are not really actinic. Just wanted to give you a heads up. Do a search in the forum on jebo and see what others have said.
