Coral light for 55l tank

Hi all I have a 55l coral tank. I brought the tank for a bundle it included pritty much all I needed.

I later found out (1 year ago) after adding all my corals and my beloved bicolour blenny that the lighting it came with was only suitable for corals with low light needs. This was after I added £300 plus of lovely corals he told me this.

Extremely frustrated as the person that sold it to me said it was good for all corals. Anyway I need to replace this lighting unit as most of my corals are browning out. I'm in the uk so british lighting units are preferred. Cutting to the chase does anyone know any good lighting units that would light a 55l tank with 12inch by 12inch length and width?

i just splurged and bought a pair of hydra LEDs with a director. best aquarium investment i ever made. for a 55l tank and depending on the dimensions, i think one of the smaller hydra units would work for you.
