Are they dimmable? I think you can get a more advanced fixture for that amount.

I don't know if u can dim them for me it's not needed I use a separate moonlight to save hours on the light my big thing is separate power supply's the main reason I like this brand is the customer service it has a 1 year warranty and then for 4 years if anything goes wrong it's $49 flat fee to repair no shipping charges they back there product

but dimming is a big deal. How will you adjust color or turn up or down intensity?

Not worried about color the combo is real nice but i am worried about intensity I personally think 100 1 watt LEDs is way over kill but that's what is recommended by them for a 24x24 inch tank that's 32in deep hope it's not two bright

I don't think it will be enough for the corals at the bottom. 3w would be better but that's just IMO. Mr. X knows much more

Now I have 2 marineland reef capable that are 1 watt and they only have 21 LEDs per light my corals are growing nice use to have 3 of them on the tank but it was to much had to take one away was bleaching corals now this new light has 112 LEDs so I'm worried again but now it's a 50/50 mix of royal blue and white the reef capable only has 3 blue LEDs per light so with less whites I hope I'm ok

How long have you had these marineland lights over your tank?
