So im finally giving in to the led craze. I want to replace my stock biocube pc lighting with some led's to grow some sps. i have been doing ALOT of research and have narrowed it down to 2 options. First would be http://www.aquastyleonline.com/products/Aquarium-24--LEDs--DIY-Dimmable-Kit.html i have heard alot of good things about them. My other option would be for me to modify the canopy and add http://www.ebay.com/itm/120W-marine-organism-Aquarium-Coral-Reef-Fish-Tank-LED-Lamp-BLACK-Shell-Dimmable/360849377364?_trksid=p2050601.m2372&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D207%26meid%3D4567103125779495791%26pid%3D100085%26prg%3D1112%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D140630708641%26%26clkid%3D4567105136695365656&_qi=RTM1562571.

I tried Goggling the Ebay Dimmable supermart168 and the only links I see are for Ebay...also noticed some "bad engrish" in the details section. Unfortunately can't offer any ideas for you but thought I'd chime in.

I have a Coralife Biocube 29 which I fully populated the LED banks but I am not planning on sps any time soon.

If they are cheap lights, they are cheap for a reason. With higher priced units, you almost always get a better/higher light output product. I've heard of those Chinese eBay fixtures only lasting a year, and even causing fires once or twice. If at all possible, I'd suggest going with a more well known product. I have a Reefbreeders Photon fixture and love it. They make a value fixture as well, which is the same, just not programmable. As for mounting on a BioCube, you'd have to ask someone else. I've never owned a BioCube, but people do mount aftermarket lights on them.
