For about 14 bucks they're hard to beat considering they come with a waterproof housing. You do have to instal the plug yourself but that's a cakewalk.
Could you shoot me a link... Can't seem to find it. Thanks

Quick question dudes!


I got two 120watt dimmable taotronic fixtures on my 90. I feel like my favia and other corals just don't look the same under my lights as they did at the LFS. They are using the same lights. Idk what's up.

Lighting choice is important but it is not the only factor for your coral's health. The well balance system is a lot more important than your lighting selection. Your LFS might be doing a lot differently comes to skimming, dosing etc. While you are running a 180g skimmer for your 90g tank, they probly running a 3000g commercial skimmer for their entire 1000g water volume. You might be using CA reactor and already feel that is a fancy addition, yet your LFS might run multiple dosing from Mag to CA to iodine. My point is, even with the same setup, coral might comes out differently, and the chance you will have the same set up of your LFS is very unlikely

If your talking about jerry's corals then they are getting about the same skimming, lighting and maybe less flow. He is however using red sea pro which he's saids given him great results and there is also a good chance that driving what 3 hours will make them look a bit dull for now. Give em a few days and just keep an eye on em and I bet they start looking better.

+1 I have yet to see a full blown (healthy&growing)reef being lit by these lights and no par numbers either.
