    I recently read how awesome these lights are and was skeptical to purchase them. I am so glad I did. My tank looks completely different and I only installed 2 bulbs of the 6. AMAZING!!! Never using zoo med or whatever other brand I was using. Worth the money.

    I'm planning on making my own LED fixture pretty soon and I was just wondering, do you guys think this will be enough for a 90 gallon tank that's 22 inches deep (didn't include the sand). I plan on mounting this around 6 inches off of the tank. I want it to be able to support a mixed reef tank...

I'm likely going to build my own LED fixtures from rapidLED but I'm wondering, is there a common rule regarding the length of the fixture vs the length of the tank? Should my fixture go end wall to end wall or should/can there be a...
