I will probably want to keep some frogspawns and as my tank gets older some clams and nems. I do not have a canopy.

Then you want something potent. the question now is -what are you willing to spend?
I use Chinese made LED fixtures over my system that will enable you to keep whatever you want. They don't have a lot of control however. Basically, they are dimmable per a pair of knobs, and they have separate plugs for blue and white LEDs, but nothing more. You would need 2 of these at about $150.00 a piece. There are many other suitable units, but these are about the cheapest.

It pays to shop around for lights. I just did and found lots of choices on eBay.

sorry I think I should of made my point a bit clear, 6000K is able to keep coral, but at the same time because it is favour in red and green, it would also promote unwanted algae grow even more. As far as for fixtures, I would suggest to research first before you make your choice, especially the cost and differences on different LED chips. How much control you looking for over your fixtures and how much you are willing to pay for. brand name products using higher quality materials but will cost range from 399 to over 1k depend on the size of your tank. Chinese brand LED can go from $120 to $500 depend on the brand of LED they use, color they use and also the functions they add to the fixtures.

I had a question for you if you have the double brights - are the bulbs replaceable or are you SOL once they burn out?
