Can anyone recommend an LED light fixture for my Malawian 75 gal tank?

My three bulb t5 fixture just bit the dust. I had a 54w actinic blue bulb and two 54w 10K bulbs in the fixture. I keep Acai, demonsoni, and yellows. I liked how the actinic bulb brought out the blu in the fish.

I'm more concerned with light coverage vs light intensity. My three bulb HO t5 fixture produced tons of light, but I still had dead zones in the front and rear top of the tank. I'm a little concerned that one of those thin LED fixtures won't cut it. Any advice from personal experience with LED fixtures?

GHL Lightbar is a consideration.
