It's absolutely nothing for a reef, but good enough for FOWLR I the meantime. My coralline will surely suffer...

On the plus side, the protein skimmer has started skimming, albeit micro bubbles still abound....

I'm sorry to hear that. If you are going with a new fixture under 400 i'd recommend 6-8 stunner led strips by eco exotic. They are 46 per strip. And is enough par to support your tank. You can also buy them one by one until you have enough.

I found a better version here that only needs 4-5 strips http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...AID=1064458176

I'm not going to say its better or worse than other fixtures because everyone has a right to an opinion. I only picked the strips because its considerably cheaper than other LED modules. It also gives off less heat, lasts longer, and has a nice shimmer to it. And since it's a strip, you can easily retrofit it with Compact fluorescent or T5HO. I'm buying one strip soon for my 5 gallon pico because it looks easy to place under the CF hood I have now. I can make a review on it but that's in a few weeks.
