Exclamation LED lighting experts

Calling on those LED light experts. I'm looking for a black box style LED fixture that is around 32"x5.5/6"x2.5/3" but am having issues with finding this size. Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks

You might have to use light bars.
Generally sold for extra lighting with led's.

Second light bars..
Beamsworks does make 2 row #W fixtures that look to be slightly under 6" wide.
But not very strong nor in a good length either..(24,36,48 )

DA marine has better length choices
Beamswork DA Marine (1/2W emitters but output is about the same, lensed 120 not 90 though) LED Aquarium Light White Blue FOWLR Cichlid 24 30 36 48 72
30" is 4800 lumens..so not bad..

Depending on needs and depth of tank they are err "workable"..and inexpensive.

You sort of need to find stuff like this but to be honest.. it's not easy..

not sure why it's listed at only 1660 Lumens though..

Thank you all for the input, light bars seem the way to go with this specific footprint I've got to work with. Reefbreeders are a bit on the high side, how do you guys feel about the Fluval Marine series? Would use two strips, mainly keeping softies such as ricordea, zoas, rhodactis, and the occasional LPS here and there such as frogspawns and hammers.
