65g reef build

Hello fellow aquarists! I'm going to begin a new reef build in the next few weeks, a 65g. just waiting on some extra funds so I can get it all together. I had a bio cube some time ago and had to break it down in a move. its been a couple years since I was in the salt game but I'm ready to go again in a much bigger way. I'm looking for tips and direction where you can offer. The tank I'm getting comes with pretty much everything you need. I will need to get a light and a heater. also a few powerheads. Can anyone tell me if this light will be sufficient for lps or even sps down the road? if not whats a good light to look into? As soon as I get some things together ill start posting pics of the process and ask questions along the way. thanks all!

Sadly, those lights are junk.
I would look towards a taotronic black box style led panel as you can keep any photosynthetic creature under them youíd want.
That is the cheapest option, but there are tons thatíll keep them in a wide range of pricing.

That should do. The 165 ones are what I was originally referring to.
