Yes, they put out brilliant light, they don't run hot, they use less electricity, I don't like the florescent lights these days that have the ballasts built into the fixture, to me they go out to easy, my last one before going LED I had to replace bulbs about every six weeks, I won't ever go back, LED is the future of aquarium lights IMHO

Replace a flourescent bulb every 6 weeks?!--I replace every 6-9 months and never had a problem with built in ballasts on T5 or VHO fixtures.

If you go LED, go with atleast 3 watt per LED--Marineland is 1 watt per LED. There is a big difference between what you can get away with and what will give you the freedom to house various corals. You can not house clams, SPS, or moderate to high light corals under Marineland LED's for an extended length of time and expect good results. T5's and MH will allow you to do what you want.
