LOL, spending money is good for the economy!
But once it all settles in, resist fixing things that aren't broken.

I think those were $138.99 but they are not full spectrum

Ya think I'm sold on the full spectrum for that exact reason!

I just seen that exact unit in person for the first time about a week ago and I LOVE the coloring. it does have a bit of a purplish hue to it but looks great.

Dont mean to rain on your idea of full spectrum leds but I have a unit and I have the regular blue and whites and I would buy the b&w ones again before the full spectrum ones. They give the tank a weird purple glow which just isnt to my liking. And without the blues on the whites are actually kinda green and not very pretty in my opinion.

I thought the same as you do, why not try the best and have no regrets but I actually kinda regret buying them now. :-( Not that they wont do a great job with coral just visually they arent as great as you would think.

I;d save the extra money and spend it on some corals or fish instead.

Thanks! Maybe I'll stop in all the LFS this weekend and see if anyone has a similar unit I can actually see. It's one of those things you can't envision without having seen it before.
