Hey if you can let me know how they are that would be great I'm most likely ordering the 120w dimmable for my 29 nanotube as well as a complete overhaul on the whole thing including a new stand

Just got them today, and they are SO BRIGHT! Im gonna work on hanging them tonight. Ill get some pictures tomorrow forsure. I think I'm going to use 4 separate timers to turn the blues on about 20 mins before the whites come on.

The only thing I don't like about them is that the LEDS won't power down less then 40%

Welcome to the LED club. I switched about a month ago and had some coral issues. My suggestion is to run the blue and white at 40% if that is as low as you can go. Every two weeks kick it up about 10-15%. better to be safe. The par change is hard on the corals.

Same here ...I'm going rimless on my 28 biocube and really don't like the look of hanging it from the ceiling
