Would the 32" 200watt Controllable Fixture from reef breeders be enough for a 100 gallon tank with 90 degree optics? it is a 4' tank with 25" depth

I am thinking for the money it sounds good.

I think you'll have some serious shadows. You don't even need optics if those are the same potency LED that's used in the value fixture.

Would two value fixtures take away the shadows?

It might do you think the value fixtures are just as good

Yes, they will, but they aren't as controllable.

I would suggest just asking Logan at Reefbreeders. There's a 'Contact' page on the website.

I would think so and would the value fixtures be better on a 92 corner tank or the 32 in on it ?

At 48" across, I would think you would need 2 of those value fixtures. The 32 without optics might be a better option.

Always account for the center braces blocking light, unless you DIY clear center brace. Its overlooked very often.
