Haven't heard of them, if you really wanna do LED's there's better choices out there. You have to decide T5 or LED.

No I just have the two 12inch marineland singlebrights that came with the tank and SUCK.. That's why I was wondering if these LEDs are worth the risk or just get a T5 fixture

I bit the bullet and went with the Kessils. They really look awesome and pretty much put out no heat. The shimmer in the tank is very cool and while it took me a little longer to get because I wasn't planning on spending that much, I'm really happy that I waited now.

Ugh!! I just wrote a page and the app crashed!! In short. This is what I use, I have 1 on my bio cube 29 so you would need 2.

They have some really nice T5 HO fixtures also. The thing is you really get a nice shimmer effect with T5's so it really comes down to preference.

Haha love it when the app crashes... Didn't see a price anywhere on the link..? I know the sol lights are nice though.

I've looked at those ad like them a lot! If remember from your other posts you have a 55g? How many did you have to buy to cover the tank?
