I got 8 for my tank
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 got them from amazon I think they were $ 550. and my corals seem to be growing under them really well .
Zoo med 15 watts LED. In the sunset. ~Shahin Ruyani.
Awesome, i have the same ones (Dsuny) over my 125, been using them for about 4 months and so far my zoas are growing like crazy, i am just now getting into sps so I'll update on how they do.
How much did they cost
I bought the quad set for about 550.00
i just added some new corals yesterday so hopefully I'll have some positive results in a couple months when i update my post.
I use 2 Mars Aqua 165 watt. Approximate cost, $80 on Amazon.
I use 2 Mars Aqua 165 watt Dimmable. Each have 2 cooling fans and 2 dimmers. The cost is approximately $80. per unit on Ebay.
I've been very happy with mine!
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.
Your tank looks great
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.
What are others thoughts on this particular led lighting for Anemone's and Clowns?
I use 2 of their 400 series linked together and I love em)
did u have any expensive with this one? it looks much more modern than other lamps, http://www.luminiaqua.com/aquarium-light-asta120r1/
The first domestic engineered to replace a 400 watt MH in intensity and penetration.
I bought a cheap Led light on Amzon http://amzn.to/1mTpXkS , and I want to test its properties compare with professional aquarium light.
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.
