Are you asking for advice, for a design, or for someone to actually physically help?

I live in Pittsburgh Pa so if there is anyone around the area that can psychically help, that would be awesome!

But I'll take step by step advice as well.

One bit of advice I can give you is don't put that many lights on a 75. I have one 2 x 54 kit on my 75 and it's plenty of light. I think doubling that may give you some pretty good algae farming issues.
