    Which one is better? The marineland reef led light? Or the marineland advanced led light? Or input your opinion of the best light. I'm doing a 75 gallon reef tank, with a 29 gallon sump. I already have the 24 inch reef light for my tiny tank and I LOVE IT

    I dont think either is the way you want to proceed if you intend to establish a "reef" in your 75g. I have an 75g (48x18x21) and if I had to light it over again, I'd have gone with three Kessil A360WEs (I used two in the beginning and later supplemented with a pair of 54w T5s) or three Radion XR15s if I were to stick with LEDs (they've worked well for me with no reason to change). If I were on a budget, it would be a pair of 16" black box (likely SBReef as I had decent results with them before switching to Kessil).

    The advanced is more a freshwater model. These are not good lights for the money.

    Id even consider buying a used kessil, radion, or aqua illumination for that price.
