New lighting! Yay

So I just received my LED lighting from hong kong. Costed me $188 plus a duty tax of $19.56. So far I'm pleased

Got a coral also, have no idea what it is

I don't know anything about LED lights but why didn't you get the 48" to go across the tank?

I like the light but I would have gotten 2. You have shadows on each side so low light hardy corals will have to go there. But nice light non the less.

I haven't mounted it yet. I'm gonna hang it 7 or 8 inches above the tank so the light will be dispersed everywhere.

How deep is the tank? Mounting it that high might cause problems on stuff at the bottom of the tank. The light needs to be able to penetrate. Not sure if LED's will or not but I know T5 lights aren't good in anything deeper then 26"
