    Evergreen 120 watt led's

    Anyone use these led's on their mixed reef? Just wondering how many of these I would need for a five foot long 24 inch deep 108 gallon aquarium. Just thinking I might spend some $ that I don't have haha thanks

    I would say 2-3 for good coverage. I'm getting 1 for my 3 foot and I'm not sure how much it will cover

    To me they look a lot like the Chinese LEDS... not sure if they are the same but they look a lot like mine. There is a difference in that I have 2 "on-off" buttons on the top of mine.... Mine grow everything. I have 3 over my 110g

    They are the same, just a newer model. They took away the on/off for some reason.... It's kind of dumb. But the same light:p so go with 3

    My tank is 6 feet long... I'm not sure if he should do 2 or 3... I would think at 5 feet the lights would be very squished. If they are the same then I can tell you that they grow everything :)

    How high above the water line do you have your lights convict? I'm a "she" by the way.

    Sorry Rufus, I get called a guy too sometimes on the online :) They are a foot away from the water surface, I have them set at 45%... 100% was way too blinding

    If I do get them they would only be six or seven inches over the water line, I hope that will be enough. I'm planning to set them on top of my existing canopy, Will have to cut holes for lights to sit into, and put glass over holes and lights over glass. So no salt spray, that's what's killing my lights now.

    I'm sure that that will be fine... might just not spread the light as much but I have no ideas about these things

    On a 5 foot when placed directly in the canopy they leave beams of lights and dead spots:/ they had it like 2 inches up so yours should be better at 7 or so up

    These ones are ordered from a Canadian company but made in China. Reef supply Canada and they come with a three year warranty. For $179 a piece I was happy. I've ordered from China before on eBay but was a little concerned about the import taxes or duties because they couldn't give me a definite amount so I went the safe way and purchased from Canada.

    I have 108 gallon tank that's been set up for about 4 years. I have softies, lps and one sps, and two bta's. If you look in my other post about my tomini tang you can see my tank.

    Well quick update. New lights are working well. I've got them set at 50% whites and 75% blues. It took me this whole time of gradually turning up the intensities so as not to bleach my corals and bubble tips. And speaking of which (bta) I now have four of them and they are showing their bubbles which they never did with my old lighting. But four is enough no more splitting bta's please.
