Default Best LEDs for ADA 180P to Hang 16 inches above surface

Tank is 6' x 2' x 2'. Will be an Amano wanna-be setup with "grass like" bottom and sparse plants on a piece of driftwood.

Fixtures will be suspended about 18 inches above the water surface.

I want lights that can deliver PAR down to the bottom of the tank.

I was going to buy 4 Marineland 36" LED Aquatic Plant Lighting System Fixtures and run them in 2 "strips" across the tank. I am thinking these because they seem well made, come in 6500k temp and are available at my LFS or easily online.

I see there are a ton of options out there but am not sure whether any are agreed to be best in class. I am not going to DIY.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I promise to post pics as i get underway.
