A lot of people happen to use the generics or Taotronics. I've heard good things but you'll probably have to dim them.

Wow. That's a good price. I just got two for $300 about four months ago.

Good deal on those panels. I just bought 3 of them for $380 and I thought I did well. lol

They will grow anything you can think of so you will be good to go with these.

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

I wouldn't consider these "all in". They are good for the price but aren't anything super special. They certainly don't have all the "bells and whistles". If you want a cheap way to grow anything you want these are your best bet. And this thread is from earlier today.

LOL ,didn't pay any attention to the post date ..
I'm just keeping some shrooms ,leathers ,zoa and button polyps ATM..Tired of replacing T-5 bulbs and the heat output from them..
Guess what i meant by all in is simply wanting to ditch the T-5's and only have LED's,and the price seems right on these

Alright! Yeah it's a good choice but you may bleach your softies. Just make sure to get one you can dim.

This fixture happens to be extremely bright. It all depends on the bulbs and optics and chips.

I have hear some say they can be brighter then metal halides.
