    Are those dimensions metric or imperial? If the latter Radions might fit the bill, expensive but very versatile and have the punch to hit the bottom.

    What sort of money are you looking at spending. To keep the cost down for a big tank like that I would be looking at some of the Chinese leds units. There is loads out there but for softies you don't need much.

    Think these are a 4' unit and with 3 year warranty you can't go wrong. I'm sure two would cover your tank, and you can get 120 optics on the to give a wider spread.

    Just get a few of those cheap Chinese led units I had a while ago. You can prob get them for about £100 (or less) each now. I recon 3 would be enough
