LED Lights

I'm looking for some good LED lights and was hoping that the fish community could help me out and recommend some good models. What you like or dislike about them. All input is good input

Well anemones need a lot of light while softies can deal with varying intensities of lighting.

What would you be willing to spend on lighting?

I have a Marineland with a dual built in timer. It works great.

3pcs 165W LED Aquarium Light for SPS LPS Coral Reef Full Spectrum Dimmable | eBay


I don't know what size tank you have. You might not need three. You need one for every two feet. I have a 6 ft tank so I had to get three. You can get them individually.
