I don't know where you read that, but it's not at all true. They come with 3w LED's which are driven at 2w. Mr_X and I both posted PAR #'s for that fixture and they are fine to use for ANY coral.

I like how the author of that article admits he doesn't have those LED's but is just passing on what he heard. Hardly a reliable review IMO.

Anyway, here you go.


And my tank under those LED's.

Wow your tank looks sweet! And they are comparable to 175 watt mh thats nice to know and the price is nice as well thanks for the info i couldnt find any par readings for these fixtures online anywhere and that was keeping me from getting them and making the move from 125 fowlr to 125 reef now to talk the wife into spending the money on "only lights" as she dont understand that i cant keep coral or a bta under my current no t12 light setup

Search on amazon.com or ebay under led reef lights or some variation or put taotronics led reef lights and you should be able to find them
