Light Fixture (which brand)

Hello, I'm about to upgrade my lighting for my 75 gallon FW planted tank...

I have done some looking around and decided upon either the,

Current USA Orbit 48" 4 x 65
or
Coralife FW Aqualight 48" 4X65Watt

They both look nice and I cant decide.
Does anyone out there have these fixtures and recommend one over the other.
Any PROS/CONS that you may know of ???

I actually have both of those brands running right now. A current 1x65W and a Coralife 2x65W. Both of them are great fixtures, I've had no issues with either, except the moonlight in the current went out. No worries, I DIY added 3 anyway.

Have you considered T5HO? I'm starting a new project and going to give the TEK fixtures a whirl.

I agree. They also have a 96 watt that might work better or in conjunction with the lower wattage light kit..
