Yup I'm buying them, no doubt. That's pretty high end.

Such a clever advertisement. It mentions all the goodies but does not mention about the specification. You need to know what is the total wattage output and the number of LEDs on it so you know if the standard 3-watt LED is being used that is required for most corals.

Edit: The light fixture you plan to buy will not solve your original problem though.

Brand name, I got to examine them before purchase, timer and dynamic lighting, mounts on the tank in one complete strip, and can handle almost all stony corals.

No, that light can support softies, and maybe low light lps

I beg to differ, they're used in my LFS for growing coral and all their SPS and LPS are thriving I've got softies, LPS, and SPS in my tank right now and all of them are doing just fine.

One unit, probably a 75-100 gallon tank.
