Getting Tank List Together

Hey guys so Im about to start a 55gal saltwater tank. Ive had SW tanks before but I always had hair grass issues. This time Im creating a HOB refugium with an aquaclear110 (maybe bigger) Im going to have a wave maker this time as well with powerheads my only problem is finding lights Id prefer LEDs but theres gotta be a decent set for corals that arent over priced to Hell. my last tank had Kenya trees and GSP and some sponges growing with a Current orbit marine light but I know theyre not amazing with all corals. So any recommendations really help every person has recommended some crazy 400$ light that I need two of supposedly so I really need the help! Thanks!!!

Aqua mars led off eBay are 100$ each and youd probably need two. Reviews are mixed but generally positive Id look into them at least as an option.

Awesome!!!! I was doing all kinds of searching last night and came across several cheap black box LED lights that are under 100$ but have hardly any bad reviews so Im tempted to pull the trigger on one I believe one was the Aqua Mars that I looked at too!

Those black box style LED panels are all pretty solid. They had some issues in the beginning, but they are powerful. Just be careful not to burn your coral with them. LEDs penetrate light very well and I've accidentally nuked a lot without realizing.
