I don't think you will be disappointed. These are not $750 Radion fixtures, but your corals won't know that.

That's a crazy good price. You could buy over 500 watts of LED for the cost of some single fixtures. Built in China is the only draw back.

For sure. The fact that it has enough light to keep anything is great for a coral newbie like me . Now I don't have to worry about accidently buying a coral that I can't support.

Just remember that light is only part of the equation. You should be set there.

I'm thinking 3 of these for my 100 gallon reef.
Dimmables though So I can keep them about 5 inches from the water level.

Well you might burn and bleach a lot of things with this light if you're a newbie. Be careful!

Have you guys seen the newer ones? They have a 141W and a 212w neither of which are dimmable. Then there's the 120w non dimmable and a 120w dimmable.
Oh, The new 212 and 141 have side screw in terminals for the power cords and come with a hanging kits. They alaoss have heat sinks now and are much quieter, from what I've heard.

I want to pick up a couple, but don't know if I should go with the 212 or the 141.
I have a 120 tank that measures 48X24X25. I don't have room above my tank to move them more than 8" from the water surface.

Can a more experienced reefer please give me some advice?

I currently have 3 zoa frags, but would like to eventually get into better corals.

Here's a link to the auction. They offer all the different types on one auction

Thanks

Oh man there's also 1:1 blue/whites, 2:1 blue/whites, 2:1 whites/blues
Those are only on the 212w
And all of them come with a 3 year warranty.
Any suggestion on which to get?
