I have two reef led 90s on my 300xl. I have acros all the way down to zoas..everything is happy. I'm gonna upload a update to my tank soon, but yea. Torts and everything, happy. Whoever says SPS won't grow with these isn't speaking from experience.

In your opinion and @Dana Riddle would you say that this light was the best or atleast up there when it came to growing and colouring up LED? Or is the t5 blue plus better? I know some corals will prefer different type etc but generally speaking for the majority of corals

It’s generally accepted as an excellent option though very hard to say which is better between it or the blue+ Bulb. I’d lean toward the Phoenix because it is more of a full spectrum solution containing a touch more red and green. Provided they were used in a comparable par and coverage I would expect the difference in growth and color to be negligible at best
 

How vigilant are you when it comes to the TDS of your RODI water?
