Let us know how it works out

Yes, they are simply fantastic. If I need them on full, I will need sunglasses. They are bright. I have them on about 25% to get me used to them.

Thanks Logan. I was in the dark. Now I don't need any other lights in the room.

I think you will be limiting yourself.

I'm not sure I understand the question, but if you are referring to the panorama fixture linked above, I wouldn't want to keep sps/clams under 1 watt LEDs. So, that's the limit I speak of.

That looks like a decent light for a small soft coral tank. For the price though, you may want to consider one or two Finnex Ray 2 fixtures. The Panorama does say it has independent white and blue controls but I'm not sure that means two separate cords for timers. If it does that would be a nice feature.

If you're looking for something high light for SPSs and a clam like Mr X was talking about, the dimmable Chinese fixtures would be way better but on a 20 it may be overkill.

Maybe, but for roughly 150 bucks, you can turn it down half way if you need to. Cheaper than the Panorama.
