Lighting for FOWLR tank

I have a 40 gallon fowlr long and I want to show off the fish well. They always look good in the store and I want to have the same. I was looking at either the marine land double bright 48-60 lights or the zoomed aquasun t5 ho 48 lights. Which one of those would you suggest? Or would you suggest something different altogether?

I think that LEDs make everything in your tank more colorful and pop more. This might be the boy time ever I'd suggest the marine land LEDs.

So would you suggest the marine land double brights or some other LEDs?? I have the single bright 36-48 on the tank right now and they aren't that great...

Well, it would be up to you really...if you don't like how they look then you should go and look at other units that are set up and running to get an idea of what you like.
