Lighting Fixture

I am setting up a 75gal mixed reef aquarium and really need help with the proper lighting for successful coral growth.
I really want to stay away from metal halide lights because of the heat and increase in electricity.
I really would like LED kit but do not know what is best for a 75gal aquarium. Your help/suggestions/opinions are appreciated.

Check out either AquaIlluminations or Orphek. They are not cheap, but they are the wave of the future.
LED Lighting - Lighting

I merged both your posts and moved them to the General Hardware/Equipment forum.
