So here is the manufacturer of these eBay LEDs, only problem is I don't read Chinese! It's ZXL LEDs, here is their website.

Oops my bad I checked the lights at Costco and I was mistaken. Awhile back I had seen large LED lights as I was browsing Costco isles and thought they looked like the ones you have; I was wrong! I never picked them up to actually look at them These are what Costco has. Probably wouldn't work. They are called Feit LED Light Bulbs...not floodlights. Unfortunate. Would've been awesome to just pick em up from Costco!

I'm sure they could work depending on the color and wattage. I've seen some similar at home depot but the prices are more expensive than the floodlights.

Hope i added the link right, lots of people on this site are using these LED boards for their corals (some even having good success with sps.) There about same price as the flood but come w/ exhaust fans & separate power supply for the blues & whites. Just thought I'd get the word out. I have a few on order myself.

K, well looks like the flood lights are down to $70ish now. Cheaper than the LED board I posted but you get the blues in there so I figured it's worth it. However, it's good to have options and the ones I posted are still WAY cheaper than others.

Thanks for sharing, I've seen a few threads on these LEDs (believe you had posted on one), they look awesome, but they are a little more expensive, i like the fact they come with both white and blue, I may try one out in the future.

Hello. I'm new to this forum..
I was searching for a inexpensive led setup for a 36 gal bow front corner tank so I can use it for a FRAG tank. I noticed that someone else here was looking into lighting the 36 gal tank with LED's as well. I really think u have something here. These LED FLOOD Lights are awesome!! Color spectrum fits the application for growing various corals and everything. And Yes, they should pay you for advertising!!! LOL. Just wish that the lights were available locally.
I will definitely keep my eye on this to see how your tank does. Please keep posting pictures.

Question: I am looking to do a small 10 gallon reef for my office. Do you think one 25w 12K would be enough. I don't plan to have a canopy, just an open top. Looking for some feedback. Those lights are great and a cheap option.

Personally I think you could get by with one 10w 12000k, it's about half the price too. A 25w would need to be raised, and is probably overkill.

Thanks Tom, I may bump it up, no bigger than a 20 for my home office. Would you suggest the 25w then or stay with the 10w 12K?
