LED lighting for my 125

Hi Everyone, I have a 125 48 inch tank, I have some coral with t5 HO lighting, want to upgrade to LED's but don't want to spend a fortune. Any suggestions on a specific brand, looking for full spectrum lighting. Help!

Why are you looking for "full spectrum" lighting? If it's because someone told you you need it, they were incorrect. Straight blue and white fixtures grow colorful corals and look excellent. Have you seen each of these types side to side?

Either way, here is a blue white model-
120W Marine Organism Aquarium Coral Reef Fish Tank LED Lamp Black Shell Dimmable | eBay

And here is a colored unit-
16" 120W Dimmable LED Aquarium Light Coral Reef Saltwater Tropical Fish Tank | eBay

I didn't realize that colored one was an auction. Here's a buy it now-
Dimmable 165W LED Aquarium Grow Light Full Spectrum Fishtank Reef Coral LPS SPS | eBay

Yes, two units will light a 48" tank.
