Leds

AM looking into getting a led unit for my tank

Which 1 is the question?

It is
4ft wide
3ft front to back
2ft deep

I'm looking for a unit that I won't have to buy multiple units

What are you trying to do with this light? What are you growing under it? If it's just a fish tank, any light will do. The fixture you posted is good enough for soft corals and maybe some lps.

I would use a pair of These-
Dimmable LED Aquarium Light 120W Coral Reef Tank White Blue Grow Light 55x3 Watt | eBay
If you have them up off of the tank a bit they should light it pretty good. You are going to want lower light LPS on the sand bed anyway, so It should work out fine.

Remember too, If you buy from the States, factor in shipping, import tax and transformers to run the lights. This can add considerable cost to the price.....

You can get those units I posted straight from China....if that helps. I believe you can order plugs to suit your needs also.
