What type of corals, for non sps, 2 units are likely enough. For sps, maybe 3 units.

Depending on Budget I Guess.
Maxspect would be good too.
Below $1k but all lights controlled together. Can’t do too advance light control.
Only 4 basic lighting channels.
If you are a season reefer who wants complete control, go ai I Guess. If same as me, just want to enjoy, Budget a little and they can grow can le, go maxspect ba.

End of the day is, how much you plan to spend and you plan to hang on celling or just place on top of your tank.
Don’t take my word for it. I’m new too. I just Google and read what other people discuss.
