Options for cichlid lighting on a 6ft tank

What's some good options for light a 6ft 125g cichlid tank?

Most lights I found only go 4-5ft. Should I buy 2 36" lights or one 60"?

Any light look best for a cichlid tank? It's white sand, holey rock and blue background.

get ebay leds. would last you ac ouple of years. i have a 6 footer as well and i need 3 for my reef tank that im setting up. the lights cover 24x24 so 3 would be perfect for yours. you could also get just white and blue ones. plus if you wanted to change it up to a planted/reef, the lights would be enough to grow whatever you want and they look good!
