.1w LEDs and the color of the LEDs used makes me think that's a fw planted light, not going to get it done for a reef

No good. Those LEDs are .1 watt each. Just for looks.

I agree. It looks like a freshwater light. Go for a T5 fixture. I got one and it's really getting the job done.

Except for the efficiency per watt, and the fact that you have to change out the lamps every 9 months or so, I agree.

I was really looking for leds rather then t-5. Any other brands that are cheap and would grow coral that aren't the chineese 120watt. Looking to only spend $40 or so.

The only other option im looking at is a par38 bulb from Home Depot that i can pick up for $20. Wanted something more sleek then a clamp on light

The lamp from home depot is the wrong spectrum. It will make the tank look lousy. As for being "Chinese" most of the lighting you see out there that isn't absurdly priced is from China. If you want a screw in lamp, how about this one?
