I have been researching lighting for my reef tank build thinking of going with the Coralife Aqualight T5 HO Lunar. But now have been reading about LED's for reef tanks.

Anyone like them?
What is a good one that won't break the bank?
I think in the long run they would be cheaper on power and no bulbs to replace.

Be aware- some led's say they are reef-suitable and are not! Do your research, and do a 'search' on this forum for specific brand names and users commenting on them.
