Default What lighting for HC in a fluval edge?

I am looking into lighting for my Edge and wanted to know what you think for HC requirements and my edge setup. I think these are the 3 ways I may go:

1. 2 x MR11 LED lights + 10W Coralife Mini Bulb

2. 2 x MR16 LED lights (hack) + 10W Coralife Mini Bulb

3. Take the parts from a Catalina 8in 13W 2 BULB COMPACT LIGHTHOUSE HOOD and fit them into my hood somehow.

Which will be sufficient for growing HC?

Also what do you recommend for a nightlight (blue led setup).

Thanks
