BeamsWork HI LUMEN LED Light Pent 60"

Just got my first set of LEDs today and so far pretty happy with them. I changed from the 2 24" florescent bulbs that came with the 125 gallon tank. There is a lot of glare coming off the inside of the tank in the pics for both the day and moon lights, but that seems to just be the camera. Very impressed in how well the tank is lit up. First pic is of the tank with the 2 24" florescents, the second is with the new 60" LED, and third is with the moon lights. Took about a week and a half to get them after they were ordered, only about 3 days to ship. I did order an OEM digital timer to set them with. Only complaint so far is the timer was shipped USPS and the light UPS, so I haven't received the timer yet. They were packaged very well, inside 3 separate boxes and bubble wrap. So far so good! http://http://www.aquatraders.com/LE...er-p/56290.htm

The link is not working. Congrats on your upgrade! you have alot of corals and i'm sure its a well made investment. How much did you pay for it?

I got 2x 500 lumen leds for about 25$ each and then paid 2x6$ for clamp reflectors. so i get alot of bang for my buck. I think i'm going to order even more and set them up in refugiums and stuff.

Hopefully this link will work. The lights were $160. I did receive the timer two days after the lights arrived and now I've found that since I bought the 60" light, the plug for the timer will not fit due to the canopy. So it's either take the canopy off or do the lights by hand.

Diy may work. i'm not an electrician but i have some tinkering skills. Ie: chop off or open the wiring and remake the connections and seal with a electrical liquid sealant 'tape'. SO that they can be better accompanying to the setup.

And WOW! 6000 lumens?! i thought i had alot. And much cheaper. *long whistle* Great buy. if anymore revirews on this thatd be great
