Look at this on eBay: Aquarium Light Fish Led Grow Light Hood Marine Coral Cichlid 120W http://bit.ly/1dZRB89

I think this is a similar unit to the ones everyone is talking about, shipped from Hong Kong...

Yes, but I believe the 45 is a 3' tank, so the lamps are 39 watts, and the 55 is a 4' tank, so they are 54 watts. The fixture, reflectors, lamps, all matter as well.

Why spend $209 when you can get the TaoTronics dimmable unit for $159 plus ship...? Just sayin... A lot of people have good luck with them.

That's not necessarily true... My Tao got shipped from Shenzhen. Only took 5 days however from order to delivery.

That's not U.S. currency in that link. But FYI, the dimmable ones are down to $117.95 shipped-

Cheaper if you buy a pair for 230(115 ea). Finally got the wife considering spending the money on these.
