Question about Lighting?

I have a 75 Gallon tank and currently looking at the Aquaticlife T5 fixture and Sunlight Tek T5. The question I have is if anyone has these light fixtures and what corals you are keeping under these lights and Pro's and Con's with you fixture? Thank you in advance

No personal experience but a little insight..

The Tek fixture is gonna be higher quality than the Aquaticlife (If using the same bulbs, of course, apples and apples). This of course means that it is higher priced, and keep in mind the Tek fixture comes with no bulbs at all, so that's an added cost (I suggest ATI or Giessman bulbs for best use).

The advantages I see from the Aquaticlife is possibly price, bulbs included, and they usually have a single cord and the buil-in timer
