Here are three different versions.
Ebays:
Full Spectrum: http://m.ebay.com/itm/181345104487?nav=SEARCH
Blue/White: http://m.ebay.com/itm/321310119025?nav=SEARCH

Amazon Programmable: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0058R...110_SY165_QL70

Not sure if the EBay ones I linked are Dimmable. Make sure the ones you get are.

Those fixtures you posted may work. The tao panels have twice the leds per fixture though. The LT unit is programmable, which is nice, but I'm not sure I understand the dimension- 900mm long? What are the measurements of your tank?

I think its supposed to be 900cm long as it states it will do a 3 or 4 ft tank my tank is 1200cm so there would be 6inch on each end off the tank short but the light should covet that from the right hight. Or I may be wrong.

Oops...lol..I meant cm. Yeah...that makes a bit more sense. I wouldn't use that over your tank. I would want the daisy chained ones with no name before the LT, but The Tao-like fixtures are tried and true.

I thinks it's a pretty good fixture! I like that it is long! I may be wrong but would you not need 2 of the Tao fixtures for your tank?

Yes I think so. The problem I have is I have a canopy and the wife doesn't like the open top so I thought the lt pro light would fit under it. Thanks for the advice.

Yes, Carey does over one of her tanks. She hasn't had it too long, but you might want to pm her about it.
