I have a 55 gallon tank, which is just like the 75 gallon you mentioned but not
as deep from front to back. I'm using dual 55 W compact florescents from A&H,
and find that I have plenty of light. I think that 4 of the lights in a 75 would
be quite a lot of light, but then again I'm not sure how 2 of the 96 W bulbs
would compare -- they might give off a lot of light too.
