After some lighting advice please.

Currently have a Aqua One Aquareef 195 tank. It is currently using 2 x Aquasky led lights which have been fine for the tank and a couple of soft corals. However, I would like to upgrade these if I can on a budget in order to have some more corals in the future.

For about £120 I can get a replacement for the 4 tube T5  24w lighting that the tank should have come with. Is it worth doing this or buying a second hand led light? If so, are there any lights you recommend for not much money? I’ve heard a lot of people going back to T5 lighting

So I decided to go hood free. I now have an Ocean Revive T247 above the tank which seems to be a perfect size for the tank. I’ve got it right down at the moment (30%blue and 10%white).  Seems to be a good amount of light right to the bottom of the tank. Think the fish and gsp are a bit unsure at the moment.

I’ve currently got some netting across the tank to prevent fish jumping out. Do you think I could go back to using glass covers in order to prevent as much evaporation?
