lighting limitations..

I'm wondering what my limitations would be with a 6bulb t5 ho system on a 75 gallon, approx 22" high I think. I was considering LED's but I'm going to hold off for now. Lighting isn't my strong point, though I'm thinking sps set higher in the tank would be fine? Thanks for any expert lighting advice.

In my un-expert opinion, lol, I think you'll be fine for most anything, as long as it's placed correctly.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
