If you are wanting reef lighting these won't do the job I am afraid. But for a fish only I am sure they would look lovely...

The freshwater version or the reef version. Because 0.06 watt leds will not cut it for corals

I couldn't tell you it came with the tank, the guy I bought it from had it setup for over 2 yrs and like I said the coral growth is insane.

Can you take a picture of this tank? What corals are you keeping?

I have pics in the showcase X, I believe I labeled it " my 75g" something like that. I have no hard corals currently just soft but my 2 nems are doing awesome in there. You sir are far more knowledgeable than I so they should listen to you before me I'm just speaking from my experience
