Current USA orbit marine led?
 
Thinking of getting this light for my 20 gallon long. Any of you have any experience with this light? Will have a few sps in the tank(birds nest). LFS sells the 24-36" for 260! But can get it online for 150.00 :)

Carey, a member of the forum, is running an orbit on her 40b. You may want to try asking on her 40s thread or sending her a pm.

Dr fostersmith they are on sale right now like $140ish for 36 inch. Also I was informed by lfs owner they have to match a price online if they are contracted by orbit

I have the 36-48 inch orbit over my 40b and its been a few months and corals seem to like it. I have the higher light demanding corals higher up in the tank, such as a sps frag. I';ve seen some growth on several of my corals but did lose a brain coral recently....I am still debating whether it is suffucient light though lol. :-)

On a 20L it should do the trick as the tank isnt very deep like the 40b isnt very deep either. That and getting the largest fixture that will fir seem to be good ideas when looking at this light. So if you have a 24 inch tank get the 24-36 inch fixture, not the 18-24 inch one.

It is a very nice light though, i love it and the colors I get from it.

Really! That's good to know!

Thanks Carey, it either this light or the TaoTronics off of Amazon. Really like the idea of not having to worry about how to mount it and the remote.

I say Tao panel, no doubt that will grow any photosynthetic creature you'd like

Yup same thing with me. I just don't want to be restricted on corals cause of lights. That's the only thing holding me back at this time.
