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

I agree a 6 bulb fixture would be better but I think this is a build on a budget. lol

In a way yeah but I'd rather save up and get what's the best so my tank thrives. I plan on having it a while!

Well if youre ok with it then yeah, I would highly suggest a 6 bulb fixture for a 75g. They are about $300-$400 usually if you look hard enough. lol The 6 bulbs will give you much better coverage in that tank rather than 4 bulbs. You can also keep most anything you'd like as far as corals.

Thats a decent light. It has individual reflectors for each bulb which is what you want. It has no timer built in, have you looked at the aquaticlife one? it has a built in timer and moonlighting. They are a bit more money but I like them. lol
