    Hi all
    Getting a marine tank of a mate which will be 5x2x2.
    it's got 5 or six aquaray tiles with it which are ultra reef whites 7 white lights and 3 blue in each one.
    Will these be any good to keep hard and soft corals or would it be better to get some others.
    Regards
    Shane

    Hello Shane,
    I'm not sure of the light you are speaking of. It very well may work. All 3 of my tanks have LED's on them and they really surprised me with how well the corals and nems respond to them. Let me know if you'd like to see a pic of tank and i'll post if you're interested. Best bang for the buck. 1 Green Evo strip led 3 white/3blue in front
    2 par 38 led's in the rest of tank. 54 watts a piece. 6 white/6 blue/6 violet in each light.
    Corals respond terrific to them. Great price. It's almost unbelievable compared to how
    much they want for the top of the line compared wattage led's. And the corals are sps and
    lps.
    Mike

    Here are a couple pics for you Shane.
    This tank is the one I was referring to.
    The LED's do great on this one. It's also
    a deep one.

    Thanks for the pics.
    Looks very nice just want to get the right lights and not buy something that's not up for the job.
