I know this thread's been going on for quite a while, but did anyone mention this thread in relation to bang for the buck? the LED flood lights I would have to think are even cheaper than tao? Thoiughts?

Cheap LED solution???

How is everyone hanging these lights? I have stipple on my roof and my stud finder just wont work so im having a hard time finding a joist to screw into to hand some eye bolts. Lights should be here tomorrow but just wondering what everyone else was doing?

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you have an electrical problem!

They aren't as potent. No one can give PAR numbers and no one can offer growth pictures of their corals to date. they are moslty for fresh water/FOWLR/refugium applications.

Go to home depot and buy a piece of conduit. bend it there with their tools in an L or U shape. Attach to the wall or back or side of the stand. hang the lights from that.

Or you can find a stud on the wall behind the tank and put a plant hanger there and hang the lights from that

Valid points. Have you seen side by side comparisons? I suppose the tanks could be brighter than what's seen in the pictures.

I would but I absolutely HATE that look, I run conduit all day at work and I cant stand when I see things like that looks cheap to me and this tank is in my living room.

Great idea but not for me.

Or you can bolt this to the wall and have a nice piece of brass coming out of the center and hang the lights from that...I was going to go that route but decided to hang them from the ceiling instead
