I had them ordered prior to post. But both lights for 85 bucks to my door? I really feel like it’s gonna be okay. But now y’all have me concernedYep, the Vipars were the clear winner by far. Reefbreeders might also be a consideration - and a good middle ground between the BB and high end fixtures.
I have a used t5 but for the price of bulbs I saved 50 percent I don't think you'll kill anything with them, just mount them high. But also manage your expectation. You will not be able to grow what I would consider a stunning mixed reef with them. They simply don't have the spectrum, or spectrum blending attributes required for this. In a heartbeat, I would use a cheap or used t5 or MH setup loooooooooooooooooooooooooong before I used those. They will grow coral though, and perhaps could get you by until the next upgrade.
I'm happy to help you source one of these systems if you need a hand.
