LED lighting for a 40br


im looking to upgrade my lights from t-5 HO to an led lighting system the tanks a 36in 40br. it will have co2. and i would like a high tech setup. what would be a good led light for this? ive been looking at the radions but am unsure if they would work with a planted fresh water but im looking at adding an mp10 as well and they work in sync together. also ive been looking at 2 of the kessil amazon suns, or one of these.

and haveing them switch the leds to something more plant friendly. what would be a good layout for that light?
which would work best for this application? or any other suggestions would be appriciated

I am starting a 40 breeder planted and ordered 2 Finnex Ray II high output dual 7,000k fixtures. Total of 58 watts. Pricey compared to T5HOs, but way more affordable than other LED fixtures. I am doing a dry start method with Fissidens fontanus and UG bladderwort.
