Hey everyone,

So I have the opportunity to get a 75g. Will be picking up this up next weekend. Doing a mixed reef with few fish.
At this juncture I am only questioning lights. I ran the Lumentek Pro 240 on my last tank. No longer in business. I am still the cheap guy I was years ago and can’t bring myself to justify buying these “branded” units.

Looking for suggestions on affordable LEDs (up to $500, but preferrably less). I know I can get away with these “black box” units for dirt cheap, but this is going to be a build it and leave it. Not looking to buy today and upgrade tomorrow.

Thanks

If I decide to get new ones they would be ocean revive. I've seen them on other tanks and like then a lot.

Reviewed ocean revive. Was compared to the Mars Aqua. Still slightly cautious. I’ll take another look!

Thanks

I've got mars aqua right now. They are alright for being cheap black boxes.

I run an ocean revive and have no issues at all, I can grow anything under them too.... I would say get 3 fixtures for your 75gal, and you would be more than covered. 2 fixtures would work, but might leave some low light areas in the corners of the tank, and if it's not an SPS dominated tank, you'll be fine
