does anyone know how to set up lunar lights?

I want to create a "true" lunar light set up in my tank. I'm looking to s closely simulate the lunar light spectrum as possible. I have a 55gal 48"x12"x12" tank. I have foods some lights I'm interested in, but I'm not real sure which spectrum and how many I need. The light specs I'm looking at are (LED):

3 led 453nm actinic blue .25watts
Or
3 led 12k white .25 watts

Any help understanding the benefits and usage of each of these lights and how many I need would be greatly appreciated!

the 3 453nm blues would probably work out just fine. How do you intend to control it?

Prob with a remote dimmer and a timer. The Web site says 1 per 24 inches, but it seems awful small. Of course, i understand you're not trying to completely light up the tank, but at the same time it doesn't seem like a whole lit
