No problem. Before you pull the trigger I just want to make sure you realize that results can be achieved with cheaper lights. Don't get me wrong, I like the AI's and am glad I purchased them but I don't want you to get three weeks down the road and realize you could have gone a cheaper route.

The AIs offer great control, great optics, and look great. You will be pleased with the quality. But like most things in this hobby that comes at a price.

I really appreciate that and I understand that ....I do like the control and the fact you can upgrade the lights as time goes by but yes def comes at a price lol thank you though but to be honest quality lasts and their customer support I heard is really good

For 400 bucks it's not so bad for something ill have for years hopefully

Indeed. And I can vouch for their customer service. It is great, and they are reef keepers.

I got the AI Sol Blues also and would recommend them. However, they now have the Vega which has more color spectrum available. You might research them too I believe they are close to the same price. Also remember you need to get a controller too otherwise you can't adjust the different lights and color combinations.

It is $100 more - I personally don't know if it is worth it. Adding in additional color can give you some cool effects I suppose, but it is not beneficial to the health of coral.

But, they do look pretty sweet!

Reef Pete, I am following your thread. I was looking at the same lights. How do you plan to mount them?
