Which Light Unit for Reef and Marine Fish Tank

Hello,
Looking to purchase a light unit for a Marine Reef and fish tank.

What is cheap that you would recommend?

Thanks

Went for a Fluval Aquasky light unit in the end.

Does anyone know where I might be able to buy the power supply unit for a v2 ilumenair 600?

Thanks

Owch that looks expensive. Yeah I did wonder if it will be powerful enough.

The power adapter that I have which is fault looks quite different to that one.
Its 24v 4amp out.
I have opened up the power adapter and it would appear the fuse has gone internally.
I am going to solder in a new fuse wire and see what happens.
Also I notice some of the blue led's on the light unit look like they may of blown at some point.

Do they sell replacement leds which can be soldered in online?

it is the forward voltage and current that needs to be matched
