What is the best lighting to use?

I just bought a 30 Gallon Sea Clear tank and I want to make it a reef tank. Right now there is two florescent T-8 bulbs that came with it. What kind of lighting should I use?
I was looking at this one?
Amazon.com: Finnex Ray2 Aquarium Day/Actinic LED Light, 48-Inch: Pet Supplies

Thanks,
Dylan

Hello and welcome!

Do you have any ideas for corals that you would like to keep? Some corals require a lot more lighting (and overall care) than others. Maybe it would be easier to think about corals that you want, and go from there when you are choosing your lighting.

I was thinking all types, not a certain kind. I want to have lots of different colors.

Go with full-spectrum LED lighting (Cree or Bridgelux)
