As for Tommy, the 48" LED I carry does come with the stand bracket, I thought I mentioned it to you already. I can do free shipping and has the fixture send to your directly from supplier.
Yes you did mention that already - I love your design I just need something a little more affordable for my pocket that's all. Nothing against your brand or anything what so ever. When I commented above it was towards the led fixtures off e-bay about mounting them. That's all. I have shown many friends and family members your units so hopefully have some business coming your way.

Thanks Tommy,

and don't think any of these are good for fuge, you should look for something 5500K to 8000K as your fuge light

I should mention my sump is only 1 foot shorter than my main display and has a fuge section and frag section in it. I just say fuge since its easier than saying Sump/Fuge/Frag Tank

So less than a week in and still running the lights at 50%. I've ha to move some coral lower because they were getting too much light but others are loving it. I have one little sps acro frag that has turned from brown to purple and has started growing after months of just sitting there. Its hard to dial in the color. The full spectrum lights have a lot of red so getting the blue right is tricky but i like hoe its set now.

Update on my ReefBuilders order-
He assured me that he would send out my fixture on Monday. last night I texted him asking if there was a tracking number. No answer.
Today I texted him again, and he responded "check your paypal". When I got home from work I signed in and I see a tracking number for a 7 pound package, marked "generated" today.
Not shipped, but generated.

...Looks like a review and PAR numbers on this fixture is going to be postponed another few days...

My fixture came in today, as Ct and Pa are in the same zone, and most UPS ground items get there over night.
It's identical to mine except it has some different colored LEDs. The PAR is the same, and Quite frankly, I don't like the pinkish hue it puts off. Logan from Reef Breeders told me that he was going to send me a fixture with optics. This fixture doesn't have optics.
I just texted him and no answer back.
