I ended up having a lengthy discussion with the people from build my led and after picking their brain I ordered one of their 72" 14k xb lights. It's being made right now and should be done in 2 weeks. I couldn't find much on these lights but what I did find seemed very promising.

After a month the cycles finished. I threw my 2 small clownfish in that were in my 20 and they are doing great so far.

Here's the 14k buildmyled xb turned to 50%. I may supplement with t5's down the road but it's a lot brighter then I thought it would be.

Sps seem to be liking the light so far. Not bad for 100 watts over a 6 ft tank.

I may have underestimated the buildmyled fixture. I started at 40% and my frogspawn, pagoda and acans closed up. I now have it at 25% and they are doing much better. Some of my zoanthids are being finicky and aren't all the way open yet.

I picked up a breeding pair of snowflakes clowns for a decent price today. Here they are in quarantine.
