That's what it says on the auction.

If you have a choice, I would go with Cree.

I just asked the guy. Waiting for a response. What is the big difference between the two?

Lighting your reef... Best bang for your buck.

My T-5's are doing the same to my sand bed. Cyano on it if I have the lights on to long and I only have the white and super actinics on it.

I asked about the Crees when I bought mine. I was told the didn't have those in stock at the time. So more then likely it's not Crees.

If you are buying the 150 new, go with the 180. It's a much better footprint.

I'm buying it used. I want a 180 but can't find a decent priced one anywhere. The 150 is a more then I wanted to spend. But the dimensions are 72x18x27. So I'll have my 6 footer
