I don't think you will regret the Taotronics dimmable lights. Chinese LED
drivers are notoriously cheap and can fail. Easy enough to change out and I suggest having a spare down the road. even with a guarantee, sending a fixture in for repair can be a real problem for your reef. The Rapid LED
Onyx fixture is a solid unit, but priced higher. I think a DIY kit from Rapid is pretty cheap and it puts you in the position to make your own repairs if needed.
In my tests, the 90 watt Onyx fixture produced as much PAR as a 120 watt standard Chinese fixture identical to the Taotronics unit. And with lenses on the Onyx, a deep tank can be properly lite. I use both and am happy with both.
