Evo50? 100? How would you compare the Evo to the taotronics? Is the fan on the taotronics really as loud as people say?

I was in a room with about 15 of them running without any canopies to cover them and the running water was still the main sound you could hear.. I wouldn't have any complaints for the noise.

Hi Ted Aloha! Have you upgraded your tank now to 100 gallon? that was big,in 100 gallon tank,you will need a dimmable,if you will choose some 55x3 LED in 100g,you will need atleast 2 or 3 if you want more spread 3 is best. I am using now that 55x3 to my tank 29g,it is dimmable,with combination of white & blue colors,it has sps,with 90 degree optics!

Generally with LEDs you will not need a chiller, usually a big plus for going led for some people, chillers are expensive. Just run your setup for a couple days for like 14-16hrs, see what the temp is when you turn it on, then when you turn it off, if the temp changes more than 5 degrees you may need a chiller.

Also I'm not saying run your lights everyday for 14-16hrs, just for a few days to see what the maximum temp swing is.
