Current USA lights

So I will be starting a tank very soon again. Will be a 75 and mainly sticking with hammer, torch and Duncan. Maybe a BTA down the road but for now just fish. I was looking at the current orbit light since my wife wants to keep the canopy on the tank and I don’t have a whole lot of room under it for anything else. Was wondering for opinions on the light and any success with it? Thank you

Good lights but they don't produce much par. I had them on my 72g bow front tank (I still have them somewhere in the closet). They are good for shallow tanks. When I have some time I cant trow them on my 90g to check the par.

Thank you. I’m not trying to do any sps or anything so trying to stay budget friendly on the lights. Plus don’t have a lot of room under the canopy for lights.

Personally. I love my t5's. Can buy cheap amazon grow lights 48" for less than 100 dollars 4 or 6 bulb. 4 or 6 ATI bulbs for 15 dollars each. 160 dollars you could be done for a few years and never have to worry about anything. This is my sps tank under t5's perfect. I am still running my first set of ATI bulbs 1 year later without any par loss.

That looks really nice! I’m personally just a fan of the color of led. As much as I would love to do sps again I just don’t have the patience lol.
