I don't think aquatraders has dimmable ones but that 20 led one would probably be fine.

Bribo, I was referring to the one on eBay. The one you suggested.

And great. I'll keep that one in mind while I continue my search.

Vincent, thats a real nice fixture. But how much does it cost?

Edit: But that's a little out of my price range.

Yes the dimmable ones. The nondimmable would fry coral in a tank that size

I see. Thats why you were saying it would be pointless to buy a fixture only to run them at 10%.

It is a nice fixture though.

Did a 50% water change. Nitrates are below 0.05 ppm

For nem I'll go with R420R.

My 60w is dimmed on 75% and I have some algae and coraline growing on the rocks. SOme rocks are doing photosynthesis !?! (Bubbles on some rocks)

I can't give review about the Orbit fixture as I never had it. It was my first idea to buy this, but finally opted for the R420R 60w. Can't give a review on this too, I never grow corals with this light. I buy two SPS tomorrow, a frogspawn and a zoa.

I'll give you reviews, but everybody say they can grow anything with this light. For sure highlights corals won't be happy with orbit fixture.
