hey guys, ive been looking for a good yet affordable reeflight bar ive seen orphek or3, reefbrite xho and even seen this one from amazon called 21 led light bar. I have a high 20 gallon tank with softies such as gsp, zoas, kenya tree, mushroom and some lps such frogspawn, hammer, acan, and lobo coral. ive been using 2 usa orbit marine light its keeping my lps alive but the growth speed is very slow however when its comes to my softies theyre doing pretty well so any advice with the led barlight would be really appreciated thank you guys.

Populargrow on AliExpress. It’s default 470nm you can chat with them via support and have it be made up of a variety of LEDs. Mine is 450nm and 470nm. $60 total including shipping and solid build quality. @Telegram on Instagram did a really nice review.

I have 2 - 48" bars over my 90 gal from 21led. They are not well know but very good. All my corals do well. They come with a wireless remote and are 2 channel with individual intensity programmability for each channel. They also have sunrise/sunset mode as well as a few other modes I don't use much. I have a blue and white and a full spectrum which has several different blues and red.

It's a mixed reef. sps,lps and soft. All do great. I've never checked par but they claim 100 par at 18" depth with mine. You can get the full specs on them from their web site www.21ledusa.com. It's a small company. If you call you'll probably get an answering machine but the owner will call back to answer any questions. I've spoken to him more then once over the years.

I got the 470nm, and had them make it go every other of 450/470nm. Which is the same spectrum as the blue reefbrite

To add onto this - I also have one and it's great. I went with just 470nm because I wanted the fluorescence. Great light with a surprising build quality. I need to bite the bullet and order some more.

My Dad's got a 24" reef bar pro full spectrum from 21 led on his 30 gal and it's a nice light. The one on the left in your picture. So far his lps and zoas seem happy. Plus it's made in the USA so you get good quality and customer service.

those 50w single point "halide replacements" sound pretty awesome. Might have to give those a shot, price point is good to roll the dice on. 4 of them staggered angles in a canopy over a 90g could get some killer coverage
