On a 75 gal
tank, I would go for the "eventual" 2x96w with MH
combo. The 65w bulbs will not be long enough for a 75 gal
and won't give you decent amount of coverage or penetration. If that's the route you choose, I would suggest a retrofit PC
set up instead of a complete hood. That way you are not spending the money on a hood you won't use very long. The MH
can then be incorporated later on with an additional retofit.
hood can be built from the start with the end goal in mind and still use the 96w PC
and the NO
