Well I look at it like this. The 6 bulb unit is over 500 bucks. And the bulbs would need switched out for some blues and a fiji purple so 700 bucks off the bat. And new lights every 6 months.
For the LEDs, looking at the Orphek one runs 749.
Since my tank is 48 long, I could get 2 of the Orphek LEDs for 1500 and have my whole tank covered and not have to replace the LEDs for a long long time. Not only that, I would be able to keep sps
anywhere in my tank with almost no energy consumption.
The more I read the more I am leaning toward LED
I think. I wish the Orpheks could be controlled together. The EcoTechs communicate with each other, but am kinda hoping for someone to give imput on them as it doesn't appear they would have as great coverage with the unit only being 7 inches wide with 2 circular LEDs in the middle. To me, the Orpheks would have better coverage with the LEDs evenly spaced around the 6.1 inch wide unit.
