Wow the tank looks awsome under theses full spectrum! Carey could you post a pic of your tank under the full spectrum so i can understand what you mean by cloudy. I thought i would go with blue and white but after seeing this im back in the fog... Both look great

Lol I know what you mean! It's hard to choose. The reason I went with full spectrum was because the ultra violet spectrum (420nm) causes corals to have a brighter color pigment, but the red and green LEDs, as far as I can tell, don't do a whole lot for growth. As for the cloudy water, it could be that they have lots of little particles in their water that pick up the light or something. I know my water looks absolutely clear!

And even if my tank is 32" and the led only 16", it will give good light at both ends of the tanks?

From what I understand the "china" LEDs are made with the same exact hardware as the most name brand LEDs made in America. The US ones will have more controllability and price but the actual wires, LEDs, and that kinda stuff are the same. They are also 55x3watt LEDs but run at a max of 2watts so they will last years longer
