You can find It for way less I found mine for 525 for the pair. And I see some people selling for 300-400 each.

I don't let mine ramp up to more than 55% so I don't worry bout burning corals 12" above water line. I love these lights.

Okay I have my mind set on these lights I've read great reviews. I love the fact that they have a controller.

The AI Sols and Ecotech Radions are the top of the line in terms of LEDs, and the price tag to reflect. When you start talking about them, it turns into trying to convince an apple user to use a pc...can be quite polarized, but both are great lights. I'm a radion user myself and love them.

If you want something less expensive, people use Taotronic LEDs with great success.

I was looking at the railing system that can be mounted to the stand and then the lengths of the extension rails how many could the 12" rail hold? I was looking at getting two to start and if its not enough light to my liking I'd add two more possibly. I'm also unsure as to what length I should use for two of them. I know I'd have to get two of the rails that hook onto the stand, but what length should I get I know the 6" rail will be to short so I'm thinking the 12 inch would be perfect.

What size extension rails are you using?

On a 55 if you need more than two something's wrong. In the last pic I sent its only the ai's that's on. I use t5's for extra color pop. If you need more power they also have the ai vega. but it cost more but you do get more color from it.

The rail that mounts to the tank is 48in & the top rail is 12in.
