Are you referring to the orbit?

No, but it doesn't matter because I found out it isn't enough. The EVO looks good though. I'll probably get the timer with it.

The Eco is not dimmable! I am looking to for a better light then the orbit! I don't trust the quality. Imo

Yeah I know. It's the right size though. If you buy a timer you don't have to worry about it.

I decided to use the rapid par 38 bulbs! Good price with good penetrating 3watt LEDs! Hope they work out

While looking at lights again this morning, I found myself going back to the Orbit's main webpage. Now we all know that these fixtures use only quarter watt LEDs, which are considered by most to be "weak," but I came upon this chart that goes over the initial PAR value of the Orbit over a typical 24" depth tank (something I overlooked before).

After going over this chart serveral times and seeing that my new setup will be only 12" deep, I am, once again, really considering getting one of these fixtures.

Check it out for yourself:
