I need lighting, and fast! Help with recommendations

Okay, long story, but burnt out my outdated lighting t-12's and have decided to upgrade. I would love the Kissil, but that cost is out of the question. I have a 48" long tank, about 75 gallons. Can one of you please tell me what type of fixture would be good, LED's or a coral life?? I need it to be able to grow corals, as I have some now.

How long can my corals go without light? Any quick leads on where to order, and what to order, I'd so need

Thanks for your work in providing all of those. The EVO seems like a good one. . . but believe it or not, my husband and I were talking about this over dinner, and he thinks the Kessil is the way to go. So, I will never ask for another Christmas present again, and my birthday is coming up, so I'm getting the $399 Kessil 350W. I'm thrilled!!
Before I order that tonight, any reason you think just one Kessil 350W blue tuna wouldn't be enough?? My depth of my tank is 18"

Yup, lots of reasons. Its not going to cover your 48" tank. You'll have to have all your corals in the center of the tank. If you plan on getting any that is. If not, then go for it.
These are cheaper: And if you got 4 of these, that would cover most fo the tank.
