You want each LED bulb to be 3 watts for a reef.

It would probably would work just fine. Its a Chinese light aqua traders sells the same one I just looked. I have the t5 version of the Chinese lights and they work fine. I dont know about the fixture personally id google it and see if anyone else had any luck.

The brand is beamworks I just looked and it had ok reviews on the other LEDs they make but cant find this one specifically but its probably the same. They are probably a knock off of marineland LEds which are also made in china.

Wow, cool web page. They have an 18in 10x3w model. Or the 20x3w model. What would you suggest for a 14g aguapod? I want to be able to keep anything, coral wise.

Edit - the 6x3w may be right for the 14g. I just don't know haha

I seen those 120w leds on ebay and was interested but kinda on the fence i currently have 2-250w halides on a 55 sps love it but im switching to a 150 deep do you think those leds would work on it? 150g 30" deep its that or 400w halides

Ive seen the site haven't joined yet though. As for the lights im not all that experienced in LEDS yet but im thinking the 3 watt 20 bulb would be the best fit. That would be 4.3 watts a gallon which is pretty dam good.
