Is the Coralife 4x65 enough for a 75 gal? I did have a 55 gal and just upgraded to a 75...

Have a look in the search, I'm sorry but this has been discussed so many times.
So what's wrong with discussing it again? I tried to search for "75 gal lighting" and came up with nothing....If you don't want to post a answer don't post at all....

hey dogg76,

i think you are safe with your current lights, if it looks too dark to you, you can always add more. if it looks like too much, stagger the lighting so that they are not all on all the time.

FWIW, there are a number of sfbaaps'rs (ianiwane for one) who have used a similar light on a 55gal that was 24" deep with great results.

You shouldn't see any changes in plant growth from the 55gal, I say its fine.
I recently switched to a 75gallon tank from a 55gal. 55w x 4.

The 75 is so much better!! I love mine.

That's nearly 3.5 WPG, so yeah I'd say you have enough light.

With that kind of wattage, I don't think you'll need more. Doubtful the tank will be dark either.
