Leds for new 55

Hey every one I am thinking about changing to LEDs on my 55 gallon. And I was wondering what are some good systems. I definitely don't want to spend more than 350 if possible. I know with LEDs that's kinda ridiculous to think though. But anyway I saw that some of you guys said tatonics LEDs I think. But what about getting panorama pros? That's really all I have heard about LEDs. Any advise ?

Cool. So these will make the corals look sweet but also give off enough light for the corals to grow like sps?

The e27 54w LED lights allow for adding one at a time and they cost between $38.00 and $100.00 depending on light frequency. I have two on my 155 gal pointing at teh corals and they as so much better than my MH.

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
You could use a curly-q energy saver bulb in a 5 dollar clip on fixture from home depot for the refugium. No need to spend 25 dollars.
Do you have a link to this E27 fixture you are using?
