Kessil makes puck-style led lights. They are relatively expensive but a single unit can cover 4' width and sustain just about anything. If youre not wanting to spend that much money, you could try rapidled.com its a DIY led site. Just buy the materials then build it when it comes in

I don't think they will sustain corals but I don't think you are having those anyways
