LEDs question. Need your help.

I'm about to buy new lighting. I have a 90 galling salt aquarium (fish only) eventually I want to put some coral in the future. Which LEDs do you recommend?
I was thinking about getting two 36" Truelumen lights. What do you guys think?

I was also looking at aquaticlife or koven LEDs.

Check a few of the recent back threads. DIY, Chinese, domestic panels are all discussed. I have certainly had my opinions. Have been using LEDs for several years and have grown just about anything I wanted to. Beware of cheap LEDs, you do get what you pay for. I am using panels I import and like them fine...others think CRee LEDs are hard to beat, you just need to use the right ones. I am not a fan of fixtures that cost thousands of dollars...I'm too cheap.

none of those fixtures you mentioned are enough to keep corals. You need LEDs that are more than 1 watt at least.
