    I am currently using a Chinese LED fixture and getting good results over my 180 even though they are just blue and white.

    DsunY 4 panel for reef.

    I need to know where to get those I need some like that! I have a 125 gal. And need good lights. How much did they cost? Do they work better than fluorescent or long LEDs

    I went with two Current USA Orbit Marine Led strips as I have a deep tank. They are excellent! I have bubble corals from just above the bottom to in hidden coves close to the top and all are full bubblers. All of my other corals are doing great too. I have new coral growrh- mushrooms and buttons on the bottom. It's a 70g corner bow front - so it's very deep.

    I have two Orphek Atlantik version 2b. Dual channel LED's. Like them a lot. They provide great coverage area and my sps have great color.

    I believe the best test would be with a PAR meter, measuring the intensity at varous depths in the tank. I know here in NJ, we have the option of renting one from our LFS.

    Now with that being said, I'd consider this more a freshwater fixture....or if salt, a FOWLR setup. It has very weak LED's......13W with 33 LEDs....that's 0.4 watts per LED....so it will have poor penetration. In addition, it's very white with only 27% blue LEDs. As a minimum, I prefer closer to 50% blue...preferably more.

    I find it interesting that they say it's for a 9.8-17.7 inch fish tank, but then show it on a much larger tank.

    Now it might work as a refugium light, but they don't give the kelvin, so I'm not sure about that either.
