74g cube lighting options


New member
Hi looking for helpful advice from you seasoned reefers. I have a 74g (24x24x31) cube tank. Looking at my lighting options.

I have a 250w metal halide as one option

I also have a kessil a160

I'm really considering using my kessil a160 and a 24" quad t5 fixture.

My plan was to the tank is mainly lps and softies maybe down the road spa.

Any helpful advice would be great. As far as metal halide good enough. And opinions on the kessil and t5 combo. Is it enough or too much.
