$220 for the Tao seems high. I'd look for a cheaper one. I think even the reef breeders are cheaper around $150. Let me see if I can find a link

I swear by that light I never need more than 50% on the whites
but yes I run 100% blues

I keep a single light above my 90 about 10 inches from the top
and I get about 85% full coverage and 15% of med to low coverage
I kept sps lps and softies with no issues
