How Many Lights For My 125g???

I’m getting a 125g tank this week and have been researching lights. I’m definitely looking to go LED for energy savings and light longevity, but don’t want to break the bank. I was looking at the Mars Aqua and the Viparspectra on amazon which both have excellent reviews. Do you guys recommend them?

Also, would I be able to get away with 3 165w units? Or do I need the 300w units? If so, how many?

3 of the 165 units would be fine unless you are looking at some of the really demanding SPS corals. You don't need the 300watt units. I only recommend them for folks who are in the 30-38 inch long range for tanks since they would otherwise need 2 of the 165 lights otherwise.
