Par38 led

I have a standard 55 gal that I want to make it a reef tank. I want to have led because they said it would last long, doesn't give off heat etc.. A friend told me that par38 is a good one to have but I'm my sure if I could use that for my 55 gal considering the height of the tank. Would 4 bulb be enough if I get this

Four full spectrum lights are $480 and that doesn't even include the lamp where you put it in which will prob. be 4x10=$40 more...might want to try finding a cheap LED light...like I saw this on craigslist...something like this..says shipping is only $10. If you like this, I'd advise calling them and asking a lot of questions b/c hopefully it's not too good to be true! Try checking on craigslist. I've seen some super inexpensive lights like $200 for a $700 fixture. Might get lucky!

An idea:
~~REEF LED fixture, DIMMABLE 120watt ~~
