LED Fixture

Well i am finnaly making the jump to leds but i don't know to much about them. But i have narrowed it down to 2 different strips. Reef brights or vertex
Now my question is what colors should i get on either one and how many? I have a 34 gallon red sea max and the reefbrites will be a 15 inch and vertex is a 12 inch
Thanks

How many strips do you plan on using? They are fine for supplemental lighting and the colors depend on how you want it to look.

I have Orphek PR25s over my tank and love them SPS doing well.

Here is what it looks like.



If you want to keep SPS you will need to ensure that your lighting generates enough PAR/PUR to support it.

You can learn more here.
