One LED for a 24x24x14 reef?

I may end up with a 35g (24x24x14) tank. It will be reef and is going in a corner in our bedroom. I plan to paint the two sides that face the wall black and will stack live rock against those sides. Would one of the eBay Taotronics type LED panels be enough?

Yep that would be perfect. Just get the dimmable version . It will need to be turned down a lot since the tank is not very tall.

I agree, I use a single panel over my 24 x 24 x 24 tank and its even bright on that deep of a tank. The dimmable version is a must.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Cool. I have two that I got over the holidays/my birthday, so I am all set. They are the dimmable from eBay that everyone seems to get here.

Now I just need to see if this seller on CL will come down to my price for his tank and stand...

I am a firm believer in pics. . Heading out in a couple hours and, of corse, its two hours away like my 240g was. I plan to hit up some of the LFS in the area too, so it's gonna be a fish day.

FYI, they moved this over here to Equipment, but I started a build thread over in Member's Tanks (yes, with pics ).
