Anyone with leds

Does any one light their tanks with LEDs? I have a ninety gallon witch I want to grow sps and Lps and wanted to know if any one has had any experience with them before. I am Interested in the ecoxotic 36 panorama fixture and the ecoray 60 and the orphek but I'm open to any fixture because I don't know much about them

I have marineland LED's Our Products

I have had setup for about a month and so far very pleased. The only downfall is you are able to set up a timer with daylights, but not with nightlights.

How big is your tank and how close to the top of the tank do you have them

I will be running either reef brite LEDs, or double bright, I questioned my supplier intensely over the subject, and she seemed to know a good deal about it. From what I gathered, you can use them for almost all coral, and theyre very cost affective.

the ecoray 60's have a very small spread. you would need 4 of them to be happy over your 90.

i don't think you can use them for most corals. they are more for looks (the reef brite), and the double brite fixture (the 48" model) only has (16) 1W Daylight LED's Totaling 1,200 Lumens.
that's no where near enough light for sps.
my 8 lamp t-5 fixture puts out 40,000 lumens.
