Would this led fixture work just fine? It doesn't have the taotronic brand on it but it does have the same contents. It also says the light degree is 120, what does that mean? And what's the difference between this one and the taotronics that go for $170? This ones about $40 cheaper.

Taotronics sells a fixture that use to look just like that one with the same specs. IMO it looks fine. Let us all know if you buy one .

Seems to be identical with the same type and number of LEDs except the whites and blues are with opposite counts. The 120 deg is the lens. The 90 deg will narrow the light to make it brighter at lower depth of tank.

Yeah im considering buying it but there are a ton of the same to choose from. I dont know if one is better than the other or not. It a whole lot cheaper than the taotronics but its name is just 120w led. I do like how the blue ratio is higher than the white though. Does anyone know what makes this one different from the ones that cost $170?
