I'm looking for lights that can be daisy chain together and run off of a single power brick.

Is there anything out there like this? Not concerned with brand, even black boxes are ok, even T5 would be an option if they can be linked together.

I believe you can do this with Kessils

Hmmm, as far as I can tell any that use a constant voltage power brick can be "chained" though that means in parallel.
They need to be the same voltage and the new one needs increased amp capability.

You mean for power supply?

Yes for power supply. Didn't know if anything looks that was available
I'm not aware of any lights that can be daisy chained together for power source. I know some, such as the kessils, that can be daisy chained together for control, but not for power.
ONly thing I can think of is if you go with a T5 fixture, but even then you're going to have at minimum 2 power cords, one for the T5 and 1 for the fans.
I did convert a hybrid fixture from two cords to one, but the fixture is used with LEDS mounted inbetween them.
 

Is it HARD or EASY for you to keep your corals colorful? (check all that apply)
