Good point. I can't think of a real drawback to running one of these lights at 20-50% over a small tank. I'd be curious to know if the lower setting would increase the life of the fixture or make it use less energy overall.
I'm going to setup another small reef soon. As long as these units are quiet, can be used in a hood, and can be dimmed down they'll be my choice. I'm just not sure how well they work inside the hood of a small tank.
