When I first turned the leds on it looked like the other half of the tank was not on. Lol

So I'm thinking of going with the xen-lux 120 Watt or maybe the taotronics 120 Watt light. I read the zen-lux are a little better made and claim to last up to 10 years as the taotronics claim to last up to 5 years. They look almost identical. Anybody ever use or hear about the zen-lux brand?

The right one is at a much more appropriate height. Lights the tank a lot more even. The left pookie is stuck where it is.
Otherwise really happy with it.

Looks bright! Ill be getting lights later down the road. I just started this thread to get feedback and discussion on different leds. You could always scoot your tank out a bit to put the other light that high? I guess u would have to move it out over a foot though huh? I guess if you have high light corals they will do good on the left!

I just purchased a xen-lux 120 watt led light fixture. I hope it does well. Expected delivery is January 10th. Maybe ill get it earlier. Can't wait to test it out! Here it is. http://mixwholesale.ecrater.com/p/15...aquarium-coral

Got my light in today. Pretty impressed by it. We will see how it goes. By the specs it's great. Looks visually alot brighter that my 32" dual aquatic life t5 ho light. And the same price as that light. I still want to suspend it a little better but here's some pics.

Can't see from your picture, but do you have coral in your tank? If you do then need to dim the fixture down, or you will start seeing melting corals. If you convert from T5 to LED, should always go from about 30% or less and add 5% every few days

It doesn't have a dimmer. Is this something I can plug into the powercord?
