Lighting suggestions

Hello all. I have a 500 gallon tank. Tank dimensions are- 8x3x3. Would like to go mixed reef with Zoas & LPS. In the past I used 400 watt MH but I also had a bunch of SPS. Currently using Mars Aqua lights that I acquired at a steal of a deal. Anyway, I donít know if they will be good enough for corals. Looking for good lighting ideas with real world experience. Thanks in advance for your time.

Iíve been looking at getting 3-4 of the Kessil A500x for the depth of my tank. Will the A360x be powerful enough or should I just go with the new 500ís. Can anyone chime in about the longevity of Kessil lights. Donít really wanna spend a couple grand if they donít last that long.

is there a price point yet? The Neptune looks promising. At least in paper.
