Lighting

Looking to get led lighting or even t5 for a 90 gallon tank for saltwater reef. Ive done saltwater before but its been a few yrs since ive done it. It seems like there are far more options now on lighting (via brand names) that few yrs back. Can anyone recommend a good lighting system from your experience? Thanks.

Looking around between $350- $650 price range.

Seems like many are going with Taotronics reef leds lately.
Cheap Chinese knockoffs that get the job done from my reading.
I'm hip to the cheap Chinese pumps lately.
They rock IMO.

Just ordered two of these today for back up to my acan(acting up a little).
165W Dimmable Full Spectrum 109W True Power LED Aquarium Light for SPS LPS Lamp | eBay

Think personally if you don't see a difference and can't find one listed, then this is the same as above.
Good price for what you are getting IMO.

Yep...they are basically the same. You may want to remove the optics (from both) but otherwise you'll be able to grow whatever you want with either.
