I currently have 3x150W MH lights on a 72" 125gal tank and would like to go to LED, can anyone recommend an equivalent LED set up? I see this light on Marine Depot but not sure if it will have enough strength. I currently only have LPS but would like to add SPS at some point.

Looking for some pointers from somebody with a 72" tank who has already made the switch.

That will not come close to the spectrum and likely the output of your metal halides. You should look into the reef breeders photon v2 series for full spectrum, high powered, controllable led lights on a budget in an all in one presentation.

Aqua Illumination makes excellent leds. If your looking for a cheaper alternative you could give black boxes a try. Many on this forum have had success with black boxes

I recommend the AI hydras Hd, now depending on your budget, would will
Need about 4 of them, but to really come close to ur MH would a t5 hybrid setup, there are many options price wise the most affordable for your tank being 72” would be the aquatic life t5 hybrid 72” which set you back around 400$, and all you do is place ur choice of led in between them. ( that’s what I run but the 36” model) my lps love it, and my clam and it’s the near perfect for sps imo.
Hope this helps
