wow 2200 for how many LEDs

i think for a 125 you can get away with 72 LEDs and be able to house SPS on the sand

36 Ultra Premium LED DIY Kit with Dimmable Drivers

two of those kits shoudl work well, you'd just need to retro fit them into a canopy with fans and the heat sinks.

this controller also works weel
DDC-01 PWM Controller

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

the marineland LEDs are not reef compatable. not enough PAR. they are just for looks. you will never be able to grow sps or even LPS with them.

btw, you could hang the lights on a rack. just build a candy-cane shaped apparatus that stands on the floor or is attached to the back of the stand and comes up the back of the tank and over the top. are you picturing what i'm talking about?
