Help with what lighting to get please

Hey.. my 1800mm aquarium currently has a 1500mm 4bulb, t5 light, 2 white bulbs, 2 blue bulbs. I understand now that this is not efficient for the corals I want to grow. Can anyone help me with what best light I can buy and where to order it from please. The light will have to be no more than 250mm wide as it's the wall... thanks if anyone can help

What are you looking to support with this lighting?
The usual answer is the taotronic Chinese pane unit that can be found on amazon and eBay.

Would like to be able to surport hard corals and also make my corals look the best that can. As it's the feature of my house. Seen how some corals really glow. Would love that!

There they are, and you only need one light for every two feet of tank. I have two of these suckers of my 75g, very strong leds. Lets you grow everything

I believe that you can get a lighting system that mimics the sun and you can control on your tablet. Do you know about these
