I am currently running a deep blue solar max h.o high output double t5 lighting system on my 75 gallon reef tank. Attached are the specs of the light. I was wondering if this is good enough for most corals or if I should consider upgrading my lighting. I have had the tank running for about 5 months and although the corals aren't dying they aren't growing well either.

go to at least a 4bulb fixture 2 bulbs are just not enough i had 8 bulbs on my old 75 tank and i think as far as groth that was the best light i had. i went to a 125 gallon and i run a 4 bulb t5 + 3 led fixtures

odyssea makes a 48 inch t5 4 bulb light that is pretty inexpensive but a great light for the money you could just get one of those and run both of them.

Yea I had the oddysea 36" with 4 ATI. It's good and comes with a built in timer. I ran it for about a year until I switched to LED.
