another lighting thread

i've been searching and searching and i've just found to many answers im getting more confused so here's the thing i have a 55g which i plan to keep mostly lps i love the look of led's but they just seem to hard to get hold of and confusing which ones to get. Then there's the heat problem with mh's so i think i'm leaning more towards t5's maybe t5's with led moonlights or something

anyway thoughts on the best setup for lps corals ?
thanks

if you can afford it get the nova extreme pro fixture or any 6 bulb fixture i had one of those over my 55G tank and it worked out very well

4 x 54w t5's with 2 x5 blue led sounds ok ?
