Aqua ufo led

I just picked up 2 of these fixtures and I was wondering if anyone heard of them and what you think of these. I will post pics of the unit and the tank with it before and after later in the day. Here's what's on the box about them :

I hadn't heard of them until now and then I did some googling and it seems like a very nice light. I have bookmarked the page for the future just in case too. lol

I'm curious what the light guru's will have to say about this fixture. I'm looking for a light for my 20g rimless and this seems like a good option.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Have you tried any sps since you installed these lights? Sorry for all the questions. I just couldn't find much online about them and you're the only person I know that has them besides my LFS. Lol

Wow! I just looked up these lights, I'm wondering if I could use the "AquaPanel" on my 40 gallon tank. I'm about to buy new T5 bulbs (that time of year) and for about $60-$70 more I could go LED with this light........Oh my brain is going a mile a minute!! Do you have pics of your tank with this light on? Would you recommend it? Thanks

What worries me with LED fixtures like this is that they'll only keep corals alive, not actually make them grow.
