LED lighting question

How many lumens would be adequate for a 210 gal aquarium? Its a 6ft and I believe it is 26" deep. I found an led fixture that provides 7000 lumens. Would that be enough to provide for corals?

What ever fixtures you decide, 3 would be required to light that size tank. Good luck!!

The conversion is about 70 lux per watt for LEDs. So you would have about 100 watts. Need more I think.
