Been following this thread for some time. Has anyone even taken "before" photos of corals, and if so- how long ago? Wondering how much longer we'll be waiting before we can make any assumptions based on any small window of data.

Still interested in seeing coral progression photos. I'd like to buy these for my 125 reef, but I'm still skeptical (no offense).

30W LED Flood Light...

I went ahead and got the 10,000K 30W from eBay and my corals are showing awesome response. Probably going to get 20W 14k's for both sides of my big one. Here is the link to the ones i got. Seems they may have read this forum! haha, Anyhows they are located in Texas.

Wow. The price went up on them? I thought they were cheaper. That just proves that once you add reef to the name it sky rockets. Lol

Thats about right I paid 70 for mine awhile ago. The price is higher because there 30's 20's would be around $50
