Planted Fluval Edge Light Advice

Hi there everyone.

I was hoping for some advice. I have a planted fluval edge, and I really want to improve the lighting situation. I plan to do this with a light bar over the top. I was wondering what advice you guys have on selection.

I am dosing excel, and have a clean up crew of otos and red cherry shrimp. I am using eco complete as the substrate. I was hoping for a medium light tank.

Thanks for your time

Check out this bulb, maybe it can help. I also saw a fixture on a reef setup, got to go find it. I'll post a picture or link to it later
