Yes uv would be 10-400nm as per wiki, 430nm led probably will have better effect on my corals than green.

Ok so I am seriously considering the Tao's. My question is will the Tao's be a better light for me on my 92 gallon corner? My current fixture is a 36" 2 T-5ho 460nm blues and 2 125w MHs. I need to replace the MH bulbs and I also need to replace a ballast ASAP. which form of lighting would be better? I have no problem investing the money in fixing what i have if that is what i need to do.

Josh

Tao's are better for the long term benefits of cost savings and are considered at least equal if not better for corals

I agree. Much better than the halide fixture. Much more powerful too.
These are the ones I just got-
New Dimmable 120W Aquarium Coral Reef Fish Tank White Blue LED Light Black Shell | eBay
They are better quality than the last ones i had. i suggest 2 from this guy. I don't know if they are the exact same units, but mine are completely silent and have nicer knobs and hanging kits than the others I have purchased.

Taotronics is one of many names these things are called. They are all basically the same.
