Innovative Marine Skkye light

http://www.marinedepot.com/Innovativ...FILDLP-vi.html

Does anyone have any experience with these LED lights? I'm thinking of getting them for my 55 gallon. Especially since they are on sale. I'm not necessarily looking to be able to keep every single coral out there. But I would like to not have to stop and think are my lights strong enough. Really what I'm worried about is coverage with one unit. I don't really want shadows in the corners.

Looks to be a good light, but I don't think one will be enough for a 55g tank. :-(

I was looking at them for my 20g tank. And I wasn't sure that it would be enough for that tank. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Really the 92watt wouldn't be enough for a 20g? Maybe I'll ask one for Xmas and buy a second one.

I've been looking at 120watts fixtures for my 20g. You can find some great deals on amazon.com and ebay. ]

Thanks. The few reviews I've seen have all been pretty good. But they never said what size tank they were over. So I was worried about coverage. What are the dimensions of your tank?

It's on a 45 tall now but I ordered a 75 gallon tank from the fish store.I was told I could get a 90 gallon and it would be fine but I'm set on 75 gallon.When I go get the tank I'm gonna grab another light as that's what I was told to do by a few different pet stores.I have a few corals in my tank now I'll let you know in a week or so how things are going.
