I'm not sure, though that is a good question. I would call and ask them, really friendly guys IMO

I just want a nice MH look. I want really nice
Color output and decent growth. If there were only 3 strips to
Choose from I would just do two 50/50 and one blue... But I have another one to choose, I'll have to give them
A call

You'll definitely get a look nicer than any MH could produce, with the exception of shimmer. LEDs do shimmer nicely, but nothing as crazy as the MH shimmer.

well the good thing about that is i dont have ANY shimmer with my PCs obviously, so no matter how much shimmer the LEDs give me, it will be a nice and new look. im very excited, my lights right now make my tank look so dull. I held up a Blue light to it one day just to see the difference and i was amazed at to the reaction the corals had to just a blue screen on my iphone.... so i can only imagine how much of a difference the LED replacements will make.

Here is a link to a video of my tank from this past feb. you can see how washed out everythign looks. and also, the tank has been re-arranged after i took the video, so the rock layout isnt the same, its just to show you the color.

Yep, I know the feeling, PCs here too. Colors are very dull compared to what they could be.

I'll be buying the kit for my tank as well once I have the money
