Well since I cant find any Taotronics for a planted freshwater tank looks like I am looking again at 50 watt led flood lights. I have found them with dimmable controllers and a 110 degree spread. My plan is to put four of this on my 125. I see people taking about these at the start of the thread. Does my plan sound okay. I am aiming to get high light with this setup.

Oh you're doing planted. Never mind then.

My second driver failed on the 50watt lights. Still haven't received another driver from the seller on the first one that failed. Pretty frustrating so I think I'm going to go a different route. Not worth the trouble.
