Anyone have experience with these led reef lights?

Just found this on Ebay. Thinking of possibly getting it for my soon to be sw tank.

http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewi...id=02995514566

Anyone have experience with it?

I'd go with the one above over the led fixture. T5 lights are fine for growing corals and give you alot of options as far as bulb color.

I have had a total of 3 of the odyssea fixtures and didn't have any issues with any of them. I have a real old one that still works great on a 55g after almost 2 years and a newer one with the timer over my 90g for the last like 3 months.

You can find those on Amazon too. Might even be cheaper I was looking at a oddysea 36" dual bulb for 54.95
