Lighting options for 100p tank.

Recently placed an order for a 100 x 45 x45 cm tank. Having been out of the game for quite a while I was wondering what's considered the go to light solutions these days for medium to high light. I've heard good things on the nicrew Skyled plus but I know I'd probably have to go at least two of not three lights and would rather go a hanging route as opposed to set on tank. Kessil aqua tuna is another I've heard good things about but looks to be out of budget range. Thanks for your time.

Hanging options include 2 or 3 AI Prime freshwater leds or sb reef

The 2 brands are intermediate costing.

Your 40" width is problematic for on tank strip lights.

You can also just rig a hanging 3' T5HO setup. Would be inexpensive and can be made to look quite professional using extruded aluminum for the rigging.
