150g lighting?

So I ordered a light, but want a different one. I really like the look of LEDs, and was wondering how many 36" strips I would need of these. Current USA TrueLumen Pro LED Striplight
Could I use the blues as moonlights?

those will not sustain corals. you want them for looks, correct? no. the blues are for making the corals glow, like actinic lamps do. you can't use them for moonlights.

I thought if I had 2 or 3 72" strips I would be good. An 8 bulb T5 would be good right? I really like the LEDs more........ I thought it said they were fine. Could I do it with 3 72" strips?
