Planning new 75g - need LED lighting suggestions

967 4
Hi all,

So after about 2 years out of the hobby due to work, I'm starting to plan a new aquarium. This time, I'd like to do a 75 gallon. However, I'll need to get a new lighting unit. I previously used a MaxSpect Razor 8000K on my 65 gallon and it did okay. My requirements are:

1. LED;
2. Will fit a 48" long tank;
3. Some basic programmability, especially color spectrum control;
4. A built in timer is greatly preferred;
5. Adjustable brightness such that I can alter it's use from low light applications to high light. I'm open to using multiple fixtures, but would prefer that they can be tied together electronically if possible.

Any suggestions are appreciated! It seems some advances have been made in LED lights since I bought my Razor several years ago.


Any opinions on the Current USA Satellite+ Pro?

Continuing to do research, and I think I've narrowed things down to the following:

2 x Fluval Fresh & Plant 2.0;

2 x Current USA Satellite + Pro (or maybe a +Pro and just a +).

Thoughts? I'm really interested in the digital timers/controllers that both companies offer, though I don't know if they're intended to work with these units. If I had two units, it would be preferable to be able to "link" them using one of these controllers.

Any input/opinions appreciated!
