Hello, my first reef tank is cycled. 75g(48l,18,18)+20g sump. Plan on having cuc, yt damsels, TP clown, gobys, benny. Also with zoas, toadstools, gsp, euphyllia.

My question was any recommendations for a lighting system around $200-300 I could get on amazon? Not looking for anything long term, would upgrade in the future.

Ive been using Viparapectra lights on my tank for nearly 2 years now, and for a budget light I am happy with them. I also agree that if you can get them within budget the Noopsyche would be a good choice. I've heard several good reviews of the nicrew led lights from Amazon but I've never personally used or even seen them.
You could also look into some of the hybrid t5 fixtures so for now you would use t5 lights but you can just add some nice led fixtures to them in the future. That way the lights you get now will continue to get used when you upgrade.
 

How long does it take to you to get an inch of acropora growth? (on average)
