Hey I found another one that I had missed before. Does anyone have any experience with the Aquaticlife Edge LED fixture? Looks like it has more watts than the Orbitz fixture as they are .5 watts instead of .25. Looks promising.

It seems to be a little bit stronger...the 48" orbit is 46 watts, the AL edge is 72 watts. Still, penetration is the issue. How deep will it deliver enough PAR? Not too long ago most manufacturers were using 1 watt LEDs for their reef fixture, but went to stronger LEDs because the 1's weren't reaching deep enough. 20" of height with a sand bed and corals placed accordingly may work though. Just my 2 cents. I have never tried it.

Don't know that you're thinking of spending, but they have some very nice units for what I thought to be very good pricing on reefbreeders. Might be worth a look for you.
