LED lighting

Was just trying to get a non - salesman opinion on the best LED lighting for my 150 gal saltwater tank with soft corals. Tank is 6 ft long and 29 inch deep. I don't mind spending the money just want to make sure it's on the best I would need. Thanks for any advice you can offer.

I wouldn't ask the petco guy. Their selection is probably really limited anyway. Buildmyled.com has some great LEDS for both reefs and planted aquariums. You won't be disappointed in the quality and they have tons of data on their fixtures including PAR ratings and recommended amounts of fixtures. You can even coustomize your own spectrum if the preset options aren't what your looking for.

there are many people on AA that use the taotronic dimmable led's my self included. They'll grow anything you want to put under them and they are not very expensive probable 129 to 159. You'll need 3 units for the 150gal. you have.

P.s. don't ask the petco guy I'm pretty sure he will have no idea.

The taotronic LED panels are also a really good option as well. Also quite a bit cheaper.
