You just said watts/gallon is out of date and you used it as reference lol.

What are the dimensions of your 65G tank?

21" tall is pretty tall. You can go T5's but you will need more than a 4 bulb fixture if you want to keep those nems. At the very least you'll need a 6 bulb, but if you wanted to keep anything you should go with an 8bulb.

If you went with halide, you could do something like 2x250w halides and be done with it and be able to keep mostly anything you wanted.
