My corals are under different lighting in my sump right now until my 55s cycled because I already switched over the lights to the new tank.

Wow those lights look great... I have been considering building a canopy and doing something similar to my 55g... I think i wanna try using RGB flood lights in place where you have the blues... give me a little more to make a "show" feature... You think i would yeild similar results as your? Cant wait to see some updated pics of the coral growth!

Wanted an opinion on these lights lights. Would five ten watt lights say 3 12000k and 2 blue be enough for a 90 gal. reef tank.

I would say no, you could do 3 20w 12000k & 2 10w blues

I have 2 20w and 1 10w on my standard 55g. I think for a 90g you would be better off with 3 20w. You could always buy one and test the spread before buying more.

You know what it was I saw the side by side picture of the ten and the twenty and the twenty looked really bright so I thought I could get away with the tens. Are these dimmable do you know. Thanks for the advice

Here is an update on my fw goldfish planted tank. The plants have had the light for about two months now. So far no problems with the lights. They are set on a timer for 9 hours a day. I dose excel maybe 1 or 2 times a week.
