Default Par38 Leds

Does anyone hear use par38's over their vivariums? We use these on nano tanks in the saltwater hobby. My business partner and I sell leds to the rwefing community and our supplier said they can make leds to our specifications ans so forth. My question is are par38s going to be okay or am I better off using a longer lineal run of leds? My thought was two 12w par 38s over the tank. One pn each side and in the middle run a uv bulb. Any feedback or thoughts on this?

I have used PAR38's for a year now and have only good experience so far. I run a couple of 18W @6500K.

Great depth lighting ratio.

What are you keeping for plants? Good growth? What color are the leds? 50/50 cool white and warm white?

Everything from broms to orchids, different types of ferns, peperomia, etc. They are 6500K bulbs, but you can get them in different colors. They are one of the furthest penetrating light sources I have found so far.
