so you are going for the 350A I assume? Why not give my Pharos LED a try? Pharos even comes with hanging kit but for the 350A would need to buy the gooseneck separately. (about $50 each). I am not sure if you need to pay tax on top of the 330 per light, if you do it is almost cost the same as 3 pharos LED. Plus the Pharos comes with a wireless controller =D

I just did a PAR reading myself off the pharos LED, the light is 18" above my tank and my tank is 24" tall. At the sand bed it is reading between 220 to 240

Look at this on eBay: Dimmable LED Aquarium Light 120W Coral Reef Tank White Blue Grow Light 55x3 Watt http://bit.ly/UceNCc

How about these? Claims to be the same as taotronics... Looks to be true.

Yes. I am using the same ones over my tank, less the optics. I am not sure if the optics will give a spotlight effect or not, but you can always remove them if you don't like them.

I thought because of the depth of my tank I would need optics... What are your thoughts x, I have a 135 approx 26" deep.

No, you don't need optics for your tank. Mine is 25" deep, and the fixtures are at least 10" above it.
