The seller also has 14k ones for the same price.

I am new to these forums and just wanted to get a few opinions. Right now I have 2x 250w MH 14k but it puts out a ton of heat and I am buying 2x of the above lamps but the 14k version. I will take pics of the before and after but my hope is to end up with similar par readings at 18" depth below the surface. Again just looking for opinions on the above lamps.

Thanks,
Levi

120w, 55x 3w LED 28 royal blue and 27 white, dimmable with 2 seperate power switches, currently at $122 ... I dont know much about LEDS but this seems to be a great price as I have looked at the DIY kits and others and they all seem way overpriced for what I am sure most of them have found some connection in China to get very cheaply and triple the price on.

Obviously what I want is http://ecotechmarine.com/products/radion/radion-xr30w-pro/ but they are so expensive that the awesome features they bring to the table just arent worth it until I learn more about saltwater aquariums.
