t5 is good only if it has individual reflector around each bulb. the price of a good set of t5 is very comparable to that of mh.
 
i have a 4x39 on my 65 and i can grow anyrhing under that light, i have had acro, monti, lps, other sps, zoas, everything, even a derasa and croeca clam

Not too bad. I'd swap out the bulbs for better ones though.

sounds great thank you very much everyone. so the fixture i want is decent. i don't want any super rare or hard to keep corals.
