Yep, that's the same unit, but without dimmers and optics. It will work fine.

I was thinking of turning on the blues then whites. Wouldn't that be enough? I don't think halides or t5s are dimmable either. What is the craze for dimmable?

That's the identical fixture I have over my tank, and that's just how I do it- just as if it was a t5 or halide unit, with 2 timers.
I also have a dimmable model, and a dimmable one with the colors.

Mr. X, how high do you keep them above your tank?

At different heights, but generally, about 10" above the water line.

Well I ended up with 2 value reefbreeders fixtures, just in case I want to dim them. Plus to deal with a company in the USA. They have the color spectrum I was looking for too.
