Yea it is hard to make your mind up on these things. If you do the diy you can make it look good, many people dont take there time and its there first time. I watched a video on one his turned out good ill try to find it. It was the exact same solderless leds from rapid led, but he used a couple different color leds.

Beautiful tank! Since we are talking lights here, I have a question about mine, I bought two exotic sun 120 watt LED fixtures from a friend who got out of the hobby. I am wondering if these lights will be good enough for my tank. I have a 110 gallon tank 48" and 28" deep hoping these lights will be good enough for any thing I choose to get clams,LPS, SPS, etc? Lights are 7 1/2" above my tank

Idk much about them but the look alot like taotronics im sure they can grow.most corals. For harder coral to grow like sps id put higer up which most people do even when tanks arent as deep. Put ur softies on the bottom aswell as mushrooms so that the tank will look even if you put sps and lps higher.

What I told you earlier when you get the dimmable drivers you can either turn the led illumimation higher or lower depending on the coral. Also putting coral that needs alot of light place higher in your tank
