Yes, when it comes time to replace the 2-halides I will consider it. I figure the price of the 2-halides plus I could sell my Lumenarc reflectors and ballast to offset the cost of the new LEDs. Not sure what I will do yet. I will say though, if/when I go with all LEDs I won't be using the 60-degree optics I have now above the acrylic center brace. I will go with 80-degree or no optics.

Thanks for checking in. I don't really have a whole lot of updates. I have been just letting things grow. I started dosing Prodibio products to really keep NO3 and PO4 in check and those parameters have lowered. In fact maybe too much, because a couple corals are getting a little pale, so I started feeding more coral foods recently. I plan on buying more coral this weekend as my favorite show which comes every 6-months is here again.
SouthWestern Coral Farmers Market I can post pictures of what I buy there on Sunday.
