Aquarium DIY LEDs

]I'm basically lost in this field. I don't know what I need for my tank to grow corals. What I mean is that I don't know what kind of LEDs I need. I don't know how many LEDs, how strong, what type and all that stuff.

I'm looking to have almost all soft corals and some lps corals. (no sps corals).

I would like a blue color in my tank. Not a super blue color. Just enough for me to notice it.

I was thinking of buying from aquastyleonline.com

They have a good selection of DIY LEDs kits but I don't know which to get. If you guys don't mind, would you check on the website and let me know which kit would be good enough for all soft corals and some lps corals?

My tank is a 37 gallon aquarium. It's 36x12x20

Which DIY kit would be good enough for what I want?

If you have better websites in mind please let me know, thank you!

I would look on RapidLED.com. I know of a few folks who have had great success with DIY LED lighting on their reefs with their kits.

That have some great getting started info too, which will help you put together the kit you need:
