Question on AI Prime HD Freshwater LED

I'm looking at replacing the lighting on my aquarium, which is currently a Current USA 24" Satellite Plus Pro. I've been looking at the AI Prime HD Freshwater, but I was wondering if I'd need two of them or not.

I have a 40 Gallon tank-roughly 24x20x19 inches. I'd like a light that can support carpeted plants. I run Co2, but I'm having issues with the hardscape with it, so that is gonna get yanked too and replaced by driftwood and different rocks.

One is good for a 40 gal

I had one on a 30 gal, and I could grow everything including cyano lol

Do they produce a nice shimmer effect?

Not particularly ;/ better than a bar led maybe but the closer it is to a point source the better it is at shimmer, so kessils do well here as the leds are all close together under a single lens
