Confused on lighting for 125...SBReef lights..

I am looking at the SB Reef lights. I have a 72x18x18 125 gallon tank. Will eventually do soft corals. The biggest light is 32 inches long. I was looking to do the timer option. What size lights (length) and how many do I need. I do not want to hang from the ceiling, will be using the mounting legs.

They have 30" and 32" either will work and you need two of them.

I had a 6' tank with two 32" leds like the SB Reef fixtures and I grew sps corals as well as when I had 800 watts of MH.
