LED Lighting?

So I've been looking into LED lighting for my new 40g breeder and doing a lot of research and I think I'm more confuse now than before!

So does anyone a good inexpensive LED fixture for a 40g breeder? I'm going to be starting with soft corals but want the option to add some hard corals later on! All the good ones that I found are around $800+!! Is that what I'm looking at if I want LED or is there less expensive options?

Do you think one of these (120 Watt) is good for my 40g breeder?

If I'm not wrong it is because they're more shallow and wider in depth.

I was in your situation also for about 3 minths not knowing what kighting to get and I promise you , you will never need to buy better lighting , go with kessil a350 led, I've had them for about 2 months and they are truly amazing , look it up you will not be disappointed , and you can't hear a peep out of them while a lot of other cheaper brands make Loud and annoying noises

Where do you get them? Do you have any videos of your tank?
