Lighting For 30 Gallon Reef

Hey guys I really need some advice. So as you probably know, (or not) I just got hit with marine velvet. I will be quarantining my fish survivors in a 20 gallon. I've decided to downgrade my 55 gallon reef into a 30 gallon reef. The reason I'm doing this is because college is next year and I don't want to spend too much time on a big system. Also, because I would like to get LEDs for the tank. I want to know what kind of lighting setup will I be able to use to keep my Rbta thriving? I would like LEDs and not t5. Was considering Par 38 bulbs but not sure if that would be enough? Let me know please, thanks!

the basic taotronic units will support a 30 gal reef no problem. they are usually around 120 watts. dimmable units will be better but a bit more money.
