Got to thinking.....Lighting Upgrade !

I felt a little pressure from Ziggy last night in the chat room, lol - so today I did a little research ! Would this fixture be an upgrade to my current PC 4-65 watt fixture? I know the wattage is less but overall would it be a better unit ? The price isnt bad at all, Would there be any limits to what type of coral I could keep with this fixture over my 75 gallon tank ?

IMO T5`s are always an upgrade over PC lighting. Dont go by the WPG. Go by the higher intensity. Also moved to General Hardware and equipment discussion.
