I have tried several different lights for my 55g mixed reef and honestly, so far, I am not happy.

Today, I decided to put all my overtime money to use and ordered 2 Kessil 360x tuna blue lights with mounting hardware and WiFi Dongle controller.

I've probably paid for them twice with what I have spent on black boxes... Hopefully this will be the last time I need to buy lights for a while.

The positive side is I can ditch the crappy on-off timer I am using and utilize a more realistic day/night setup with the Kessils

If you havent opened them yet..I honestly suggest trying NooPsychee's. they dont have the fancy controller..but the lights themselves are pretty awesome

I am currently running a pair of Wills 135w on that tank. I can't say they aren't working. Everything looks happy and healthy. My issue is controllability. They are either on or off, and have a simple 2 dial setup for intensity. No way to control colors to get the exact spectrum that the tank should have.

I have already put in 2 full days on my off days (DT on off days) to prepare for the holidays (and a nice birthday/Christmas gift for myself)

Those 360s with dongle are 600+$. You've spent 2400 dollars on failed black boxes?

I paid $1002.20 out the door for the pair. No I have not spent that much on failed black boxes, but it sure feels like it.
