Well, I tried LED lights on 2 planted tanks. I was dissatisfied went back to T5ho lights. I have 4 48″ bulbs on a 90Gallon. 1 fixture of 2 bulbs sits on the tank ( with air space of course) 1 fixture of 2 bulbs is raised about 7 inches to do aquaponics , but it still gets light in the tank. I AM SOOOO JEALOUS OF YOUR NEW TANK.LOL. You could try Home Depot or Loews, they might help with price. I have heard of fishkeepers using shop lights, they are LED now too.
