I would stay away from them. They are by no means powerfull enough to keep corals.
I see that you do not have a system yet. Once you do. post up the size and we can help you find LED's for it.

I thought the 2060 was 24" long. Is yours 24" long or 16" long? The 2040 and 2060 are both the same wattage and same number of leds.

The 2060 is 24" long it covers a 36" tank easily the 2040 does not have as many leds as the 2060 and my 2060 comes with the 120 degrees optics so if you wanted to upgrade you could hang it over a 48" tank and only have a little dark on the sides which would be good for low light corals anyways

1. he asked about photo's
2. they were talking about the 2060
3. there were questions asked specifically about my personal 2060
4. i originally posted mine cause he was looking for a cheaper LED light and figured he could save about 200$ if he wanted to get mine
5.if it was a for sale thread i would be throwing prices out there all the time or referencing my original sale thread when i just once said the price then answered said questions about the light fixture so please tell me how i turned this into a for sale thread?

Agreed, they claim to be good for corals, but they are not. IMO they have an okay color spectrum for corals, but the PAR is not nearly high enough to grow anything but some softies.

As Doyle said, once you get a tank, you can tell us the dimensions and we can point you in the right direction. There are many options out there based on the price range that you are trying to stay near. Hope this helps :)

Kutcha....the 2040's and 2060's have the same amount of LEDs. They are 55 LEDs running at 2.18w each. 120 degree optics are meant for tanks with a depth of 18" or less anything deeper will require 90-60 degree optics. Since I work with the manufacturer I can customize the led layouts. Joe has these and has had great success using them. I ran 2 120w units over the 120 gallon. My units had a 2:1 ratio blue/whites so I got a deeper blue look.

hmm thought they had more cause the 2060 is a foot longer oh well i was wrong there lol. I had it over a 75 gallon tank with the 120 degree optics growing sps just fine but the optics are easy to change out if someone wanted to do it.
