Lighting for 120 gallon Reef

Dimensions are: 60L 18W 24H

I want that sunrise and sunset feature! I am looking at the taotonics dimmable led reef fixture (2 of them)

Pleas help me on what the best fixture would be!!!

My budget for the light is $450.. I am also looking at either;

2 Kessil A150W speciap blend aquarium led lighting

OR

1 Kessil Tuna Blue Dimmable special blend led lighting.


I plan on keeping my Green bubble tip anemone and LPS Corals and soft corals (LPS Dominant)
NO SPS

it doesn't work with just 1 fixture of any of most listed, you will need at least 2. by only using 1, you are going to have pretty big shadow area on the sides. I believe Kessil would need a add on controller to provide you sunrise and sunset.
80% of the " Taotronic" doesn't come with the sunrise sunset and only has the manual dim. So you can't really do that as well ( unless you sits next to your light to turn the dimming knot up and down lol)
The taotronic might work as I thought u were talking about the TTA09. the TTA05 works to cover larger area, but do you have a center bracer?

Ohhh... allright.. would 2 tao tronics work? The 120 watt ones..

The kessil says it will cover a 6 foot diameter?? Maybe exaggeration on their part.

Do you have lights that you sell that you would reccomend foe my tank dimmension?
Thank you

two Taotronic works fine but not sure if the 120W comes with controller.
The AL05 will work if you don't have a center bracer, otherwise you will cast shadow over your tank.
Are you planning to hang the light?
Here is one of the light I am doing a special on and should be very good for your non-sps tank.
aQ.Simple 72W LED Sale(with free shipping)

Let me know, but again, 2x120W Taotronic will work for sure.
