My old Red Sea 250 had a canopy/lid with light built in; however the new Red Sea Reefers come with these lights that are mouthed (with an arm) above the aquarium. My question is - if I place a reefer in my living room, will the light pollution/glare bother me when I am seating down in sofa or the lights are concentrated downward enough that no bother? Before I invest, would really appreciate your feedback. Thanks!!

It will definitely blind you if you are sitting @ sofa height and look towards the light.
I had two Radion XR15s with the RMS arms mounted to a Cadlights Artisian 70 which is very similar to the Reefer 250 and I had to use homemade cardboard cutouts before they came out with their diffusers.
I actually think that I damaged my retinas from looking into the lights one to many times before the diffusers.

I have two Red Sea ReefLED 90's above my RSR 425xl. They are mounted on the official RS arms and I have a sofa right alongside.
There is a slight glow from the lights that spills onto the end of the sofa and if I look directly at the light I can see the illuminated lens. However, I cannot see the actual LED chips so it isn't remotely bright and nor does the light spill affect anything.
