Lights

Looking for LEDs for my 75 reef . I keep seeing people post about the EBay ones.? Are they good? It just doesn't seem right to me. That they could be so much cheaper. Any info would help

I have purchased about 6 of those units over the last two years. They are held up well and if anything they are too bright. lol Just make sure you get one with dimming capability.

Yep, just need two on a 48" tank. the only drawback is how you will hang them. You can use a bent metal tube that attaches to the back of the stand and hang from that. Some people use plant hangers mounted on the wall behind the tank. Just have to be creative as they dont have any built in mounting for the tank.
