There are multiple lighting threads on here covering anything and everything. Check out the thread "lighting, best bang for your buck" as I type this it is only a couple slots below this thread. There they discus all the options. Good choice on led
, I upgraded from t5 not to long ago and love the LEDs. I opted to go with pharos LEDs which is a higher end Chinese fixture. I wanted more options than a simple manual operated dimmer as is found on the taotronics. My 2 pendants with controller cost about the same as one radion. Not as many options and colors but I don't mind, it dims based on my program and simulates cloud cover which is enough for me. Best thing i could recommend is to do some reading and decide what you like best based on what your willing to spend. On another thread on this topic it was posted "you can pay for fancy or simple, the coral doesn't care" which is very true. You wanna show off lightning storms on your tank then spend the money and buy a razor or radion. If you don't care then save some cash and get taotronics and spend what you save on some new corals to put under them.
