I like the change. Def more blue in the LEDs. How many T5s was the old unit? What bulbs were in it?

T5 unit was an odyssea with 4 ATI bulbs. Seemed like no matter what color combo it always looked drab!
New LED is from ReefBreeders $449 shipped. That includes a 3 year warranty and custom layout! I asked for more blue and left it up to them. I think it turned out great! I had about a million questions and they were very helpful. Took me over a month to actually buy it!

Looks great. How would you compare them to the Maxspect R420R system which is in the same price range?

I have no idea. The only other LEDs I've seen are the black 120watt boxes. Way better than those! I made my decision off of everyone's experienced and my budget!
