I wouldn't use that one, IMO it won't support any corals.

What size tank? I can probably give you some better (albeit more expensive) options

(Good point, thank you!)

3 of these would do you great, or if you switched the optics to wider ones (60 degree would be fine) you could probably get away with 2

I am really looking for a " plug and play" lighting system. No extra work.

Minus buying a lamp to place it in it's as literally plug-n-play as you can get.

How much are you willing to spend?

Purchase 2 and have them switch the optics for you to 60 degree ($20 extra), then all you have to buy is 2 sturdy light fixtures from say home depot or something simple like that. Screw the bulbs into the fixtures and Voila! That would probably be just over or right around $250

Apart from a DIY fixture that's as close as you'll get for a legitimate LED lighting solution in your budget
