So I'm looking at LEDs for my upcoming build. A 60 inch tank 18 wide right... So I wanna go a little more high end than just evos. I ha e thus far looked at the kessils and the rapid LED fixtures. It looks like if I were to go kessil I'd have to spring for 3 lights to get good all around coverage and approach the 1k dollar mark where as if I were to go with the rapidLED onyx dimmable I could use 80 degree optics and most likely only need two and with the harnesses and manual dimmer I'm looking at 700. So what other LEDs come highly recommended from you guys as I have done plenty of googling but I want to know what is good in the club. What is out there that can compare to the afore mentioned but possibly beat the price?

80 degree optics will be like cones, you probably want 120 degree with a mix of 90 degree as the tank is only 24" deep.

Also hard to beat the 165w full spectrum dimmable leds from eBay. I saw them today buy two for 235 free shipping. That's like 117 each. I would do 3 over that tank or two and two 48" t5s
