I’ve tried 3 lights on setups.

Fluval plant 3.0.
great app light itself is okay for low/medium light demanding plants, I found the unit too thin to get a good spread so needs suspending higher, would I buy again..no

Twinstar 900s.
Great light, will grow pretty much anything. Needs a 3rd party controller to set intensity, ramp up/down. Does give off a pink/purple haze. Would I buy again....Yes

chihiros vivid 2.
WiFi enabled and customised easily to suit.
Very powerful and will grow anything. Gives off a very ‘vivid’ look much like ADA solar rgb. Easily my favourite so far.

obviously with the size of the tank you’d need 2 units to get coverage so price will come into it.
Hope this helps somewhat.
