I don't see why they wouldn't .

If we had a par meter that would surely put our minds at ease. Ive seen a few videos on YouTube of guys running these with reef tanks growing soft and hard corals.

I've got another 10 @ 10w 20000k smd chips im going to run just for the colour, and a 15 ft rgb smd strip light with remote that I'm going to have on blue most of the time.

Yeah I saw those videos also but I only have a 90 so I'm hoping the two 30's and the 3 20's maybe another 20 will do it. Good luck with yours, nice talking to you about these lights. Keep me posted

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
Please post those videos, because the only tanks I've been able to find using these lights are only growing soft corals.

Im back

Sorry for the delay, I have been really busy recently...

I have swapped the birdsnest frag for a duncan coral, but here is a pic when I had the BN under t5's about a week before I had it under the LED floodlights, and a pic after it had been under the LEDs for about 3 months...

RED LED ATS Scrubber growth

Here is a 6 week update on the ATS under the two 10w red LED floodlights, Im on week 7 tomorrow so will post the latest pic when I clean it. Take note that this was from a newly established tank and week 1 was during the cycle so may have affected the growth somewhat. Its starting to get some weight to it and thicken up nicely.
