Might be a silly question but, what exactly are moonlights for? To see tank at night without disturbing the fish?

Would this work on a 75Gal? Plan on setting up reef mainly with soft coral and fish.

IMO, that would be the better deal depending on freight charges.

It would suffice for that as well as some low light LPS corals but depending on the tank depth 4x96w might be a better option.

They are exactly that, for night viewing. It is also the opinion of some that they can also increase coral growth and the possibility of coral spawning.
