Sorry for the delay! The corals are still growing with better color and no problems!

My 55g is now cycling and I've just turned the red LEDs on for the first time, I'll take a pic of the turf each week (I hope the red works!).

The app isn't letting me post pics on my iphone right now (not sure why) but I'll get some progress pics up here soon.

I'll be sure to let you know, just plugged the reds in for the first time, going to try 18hrs on per day at first. I'll post weekly pics of the growth (or lack of, we'll see!).

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
Do you have any growth/color pics since you've added these lights on your existing tank?

Hey Tom what's the depth on your tank.

Mine is 30", do you think the 20w with have enough power to penetrate that deep.

Also, how many do you think I'll need for the following dimensions,

8ft long 42" wide front section
7 ft long 36" wide side section

Total 800 gallons

I ordered a bunch of led stuff but got destroyed in shipping.

Have you tried the 50 w?
