They sure changed the design on these. Looks like it uses the same 3 watt parts, but they have seated them in very nice reflectors.

Taotronics is just an importer I think, so these seem to be made by somebody different. I recognize the LEDs themselves, it is what they always use in Chinese fixtures, but the fixture itself is different. The power connections are old school European DIN connectors. Pretty cool at 212 watts. Would like to put my PAR meter on it.

What would be a good led reef light for a 36 long 12.5 wide 20 deep Aquarium? I just don't see that kind if light doing to hot on it and 2 of them are out of the question. I was thinking 200 Watts Max...?

There is a similar light with lower wattage, 141watts. The seller I got the light from really shipps fast. I paid for it on Wednedday, got it Saturday.
Check this
That one only has 1:1 blues/whites. The 212's have either 2:1 blues/whites or 2:1 whites/blues.
I am going to get them installed today, I will update with pics as soon as I can..

Nice. Would this light alone cover a 3 foot by 1 foot area?
