Please show your best Red Sea Reef LED pics. I've searched the threads here and elsewhere and I'm still struggling to find tank examples of this lighting. I'm considering buying into this light brand for a new reef tank setup.
Thanks in advance!

I've looked at the AP9X, which is an amazing light setup. I'm leaning more towards the Reef LED.
And they’ll work perfectly fine. 99% of growing coral comes down to stable and reasonable water parameters. Most “reef” leds put out the correct light spectrum. From there you’re looking for the right intensity to reach all the way to bottom of your tank. The Red Sea 90 is rated at 80 watts, which should get the job done on an up to 2’ deep tank. Also keep in mind the AP9X is essentially two lights and is rated at 185 watts. You’d need two Red Sea 90’s to get similar coverage and output.

Absolutely gorgeous, love the shimmer! Reminds me of my previous 250g peninsula w/halides.
I recently started added some Reefbrite(s) along the sides to provide some fill light. Because my aquascape is centered under the lights. The top of my scape gets most of the direct light and I wasn't happy with the amount of light along the sides.

Nice light addition. In case I have a similar issue, I'll keep these Reefbrites on my want list.
