LED Light?

I have a 36 Gallon Bow Front and looking to replace the light. I would like to go with LED, so any help is great on which brand, type, etc to go with. As of now I have a FOWLR, but maybe in the future to add coral.

Thanx for the help!

Well, it is time to make a decision on corals or not so you don't spend the money twice.
A standard 2 ft tank can be lit by a single led panel for corals, but not all are created equal and even some that say they can support corals aren't very good at it. One of the most popular here are the taotronics led panels as they cover 2 ft for a very cheap price.

Most likely I will add some corals, but since my tank is new I'm planning for the future.

I been looking at these:

Marineland

Speaking from experience skip the marineland it sucks. Currently in using a Kessil 160 over my 29 Gallon and absolutely love it. I ha e also used the Chinese led lights you can get off eBay for like $80-100 I liked that light as well.

LED Light?

I have the Currant Orbit marine LED on my 20 gallon and I am keeping everything except the very high light corals.
