Default Wrecked my ai led lights

So I went downstairs this morning and noticed my lights were off. Tried unplugging the lights at the connection to the light itself, when I plugged it back in smoke started coming out.
Iím guessing salt creep got into the power connection and caused a short. Pretty sure my lights are toast.
Now to drop some money on new lights, any suggestions?
70 gallon 40Ē wide tank.
Cheers.

I am guessing by 40" wide, you mean long (since its 70G tank)

Reefbreeders photon V2+ may not work, as it is between 32 and 48 units. 32 unit is good for up to 36" tank so you would have 2" low light areas on the sides. May or may not be an issue

Noopsyche K7 Pro II - 2-3 of these depending on what you have in the tank. 3 of these will cover whole tank and then some, and will grow anything coral wise. Each is rated for 24"x24" but work best for 18"x18" area.

AI, Kessils etc if you want to spend lots of money again.

Current USA Orbit lights all use 0.5W LEDs which are only good for really shallow tanks and low light corals. Dont bother with these, they are a waste of money for anything other than mushrooms maybe.

All depend on your need for lighting in the tank, lps and softies wonít need crazy lighting, 2-3 ai primes are good options, sps heavy then ati fixture or radions. Tons of lights out, just depends on how much money and how dedicated you are to the hobby. Letís see a pic of your tank.

Tank was recently moved so nothing much alive, kind of on a rebuild. I donít do sps coral mostly easy softies and lps.
Like I said $500 was kind of what I was looking at spending.
