Also have a look at ultimate reef forum. There are usually 2nd hand lights for sale, although with the lockdown not at the moment.
Given the size you probably need 3 hydras or radions. Or have a look at orphek bars? Alternatively you can go for T5 bars, but LEDs will produce less heats and take less energy. Kind of lights will depend on what corals you want in the end. Significant expense, but a very important one!

Hi mate yes that makes a huge difference! You're only buying lights to make fish look nice as opposed to simulating tropical sun so that corals can grow. 

You can use basically any light at any brightness that you want, but I would still look for a marine light because having more blue will make the reflective bits on fish look good.

You can probably buy some LED bars for the size of your tank. Get some with white and blue. Keep in mind that if you go for corals later you will need to upgrade, even for soft corals I imagine.

If you do want light bars then Orphek might be worth a look

I have 2 Fluval Aquasky for sale I think they would be fine for your fish only, I used them on my freshwater and at present 1 is over my saltwater that I've just setup. They are bluetooth controllable and have full 24/7 simulation for sunrise sunset etc.
