How big is your tank. I'd think you'd need at least 3. I'm using the taotronics and they seem to be working great. I have 2 on my 55 gallon

I was thinking it was a reef tank. I'd just try 2 at first. You can always add another one later if its not enough

For a reef tank? Don't bother. Under powered (1/2 watt LEDs will get you nowhere), over priced.

For a "low" price the best you are going to do are the Chinese fixtures (TaoTronics, EverGrow, etc, etc, etc...). You get what you pay for but it is said that they work.
