Been doing a lot of reading because I'm gathering everything to start my tank. I'm looking to buy two "Tao tronic" 120w led lights. They are anywhere from 140-180 depending on the options. Haven't heard any bad about them.

Are you talking the reef capable ones or the regular double brights? If your talking the regular ones. I wouldn't waste the money on 2 fixtures when you buy 1 really good fixture.
