Tell me what you think of this L.E.D. Idea.

Ok. So I am in the middle of doing a 125g fowler with fish tank and I am going to have 3 watt LEDs on the tank. Here is way I have for the tank now.

Look at this on eBay:

EVO 72" LED Aquarium Light Marine Coral Reef FOWLR Cichlid 52x 3W 3 Watt Lunar

http://bit.ly/Rc1Qvn



Now I want to have the lighting storm and cloud coverage with the tank but i do not have 500+ to spend on that sort of extra lighting. I was thinking of doing this. With my already existing lighting so I can just get the effect of the storms and such. Here is the item. I know it will not support any life other then a fish only tank but I do have my regular 3watt LEDs on. Let me know what you think.

Look at this on eBay:

Current USA Satellite LED FRESHWATER FIXTURE. Free Shipping!

I purchased the + version of that light for my 55 it was back ordered for 2 weeks and arrived today 10 min before I had to go to work, I will post some pictures and a full review of it later but my first impression was great took 2 min to set up with most of that time trying to get the power adaptor out of the box and the lighting looks very even with a nice shimmer I set it on cloudy and the fish reacted instantly not sure if its a good or bad thing but they went into tighter schools then normal and were swimming around the tank instead of the normal hiding under the plants like they do with the T5s the moon light is very bright by default but can be turned down

Ok first day with the light on and I love it it the fish seem to like it as well some of the lighting effects are good some not so much, biggest complaint that I have with it is that on the + one the remote is wireless and messes with my lg tv and if I uses volume buttons on my tv remote my light changes patterns also the preset patterns do not have a dimmer option but you can set the custom lights at any level you want. Overall great investment and fits on my tank even with the T5s for the plants
