Personally I'm waiting for Taotrinics to make their 160W dimmable as I have a very deep (31") tank. Besides, money is an issue right now. AI Sol make a nice light with more option, but a bit pricier.
That's right Ingy! Ill prob be going to a bigger tank in a year. Ill keep my eye out for best price eBay and amazon

I'm sorry. I thought I said my 6' tank is fresh water. No Marineland LED reef lights, no coral. So what do you think; will 3 lights be enough?

Charlie, I think thats one.

Here's another "buy now option" if the auction one goes too high.

New Aquarium LED Light 55X3W Bridgelux Coral Reef Dimmable 120W 120 Watt Dimmbar | eBay

SteLin, Sorry, I thought you had a Reef aquarium. As for its suitability for freshwater, thats a question best posted on that forum. It all depends on whether you have a planted CO2 system, low growth or a basic tank. It may be just fine. In fact, that's all Marineland lights are good for.

I'm iffy on buying anything from china on eBay lol. I tried to buy the taotronics AL-02 on amazon and it won't ship to my address canada. Oh my haha. Is that bridgelux just as good? I like how the taotronics has a 2 year warranty. Where else can I buy it??

I'm also frustrated on the limitation of buying reef equipment here in the best country in the world (Canada).

Bridgelux is just the type of diodes they are using.

I cut some egg crate to fit as a lid still allows for good light penetration and air exchange while keeping those fishies where you want them.
