Lighting

Hello! I'm going to get a 75g reef ready tank soon and I can't seem to find any lights that fits my demands. I plan on having anemones and SPS's in the future and want something that can support those. LED is also something I would like. Let me know if you guys have any suggestions. Thanks in advanced!

If you looking to spend a little get the ebay 120 watt leds. I am growing sps and have a RBTA in my tank and both are doing great

Thanks guys. I found a 80g on craigslist with a 35g sump, skimmer, pump, overflow box, heater, powerheads, and a quad T5 lighting fixture. I don't know what brand it is but it looks like this

Does that light seem appropriate for what I want?

Reef led boxes on ebay are hot right now and if that tank is 4 foot you can pull off sps with 2 of them.

Aquastar 165W Dimmable LED Aquarium Light Full Spectrum Reef Coral Fish Marine | eBay

Problem with these are you have to be handy with constructing a way to hang them.

I don't really want to "Pull them off" I want them to really thrive. What about the current light on the tank?

IMO you can have them thrive. I have one of those panels on half of my tank which is a 110 and the spa under it have grown alot in the month i have had them. Some of the montis have doubled and tripled in size. As well as getting a nice vibrent color

Sorry to use that wording but without extensive testing of various lighting I cannot say whether or not they would "thrive". I can say they will live and grow and not die.
