I used 3 watt LEDs & discovered they caused light shock & bleaching of some of my coralline . I plan to raise them up with a hood being built. Anyone have a similar problem?

I have a150 kessil too. And I love it. Makes no noise, is beautiful, and has the shimmering effect. The corals I have have been doin well. I have 1 ocean blue kessil over my 55gal corner tank. Because of the odd shape, I put any high-light coral directly below the light. The other are scattered around elsewhere. Someone on the forum told me that light will be good for any coral, even an anemone.

I 3rd the kessil lights, both the A150 and the a350's are amazing and the price is right and they will grow coral brilliantly.

Currently my dealer has them hanging over 2000 gallons of frag tanks in his basement and its stunning.

For you size tank the 2 A150's should do the job fine. If you want more versatility and power then go with the A350's.

Anything here think that one A350W will be enough for a standard 120 (48x24x24)? I know they're supposed to be good for depths down to 24" at most. And they seems to have a good spread.

1 will not cover the tank. My dealer has 2 over that same size tank.

So I guess it would be better to just go with two A350 instead of two A350W right?

I'm thinking of making my own Kessil style light, the parts can be had off eBay for around $100

Here's all the parts you would need for one

http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...id=86257280697

You just add a power cord, and you could cut one from some old appliance that doesn't work or buy one at a hardware store for $6. I asked the seller about different color LEDs and they said they could make anything I want, even a blue and white emitter and discount the price if I dealt with them directly.

Remember lighting in a reef tank is one thing you don't want to skimp on. I use e.shine Cree Classic lights on one of my reef tanks and haven't had any problems with them in over a year. There's plenty of great reviews on them around the net. I paid about $200 a piece.
