Were they low light sps, all my sps other than regular montiporas and such lost their zooxanthellae and turned brown. When I switched back to t5 Ho all the zooxanthellae and color came right back. I have 3 of the panorama pros and am having similar led issues already. 1 bad led out of three units, not good already. Maybe I'm just unlucky.

Well for now I believe the LEDs are I guess new in a realitive since to this hobby. I will probably purchase a good T5 replacement fixture and if I upgrade my tank It can travel as supplemental to the new one. Since I already have the T5 lamps I think I should go that route. Not final yet but head going that way for sure.

12 lights LOL. I am looking for 2 bulbs to replace a falty add on on the used 29 I bought. I have 2 T5 actinic bulbs already and they are fine. My thought was also the 24 inch unit since if I go with a 55 gal long down the road 2 across would give me basic light and I can add a upscaled 48 later.

If you end up going with a 55g you will probably want to get a 48" fixture, so much easier. lol But yeah, nova extreme makes some good lighting. I woudl recommend them.
