Octopus grow marine led 90w.... Opinions please?

hello everyone.

I'm new to marine reefing and would like to set up a 15g reef tank with soft corals.

 

So, my question is: what are people's opinions and/or personal experiences with "octopus grow marine led 90w" light units?

Link to unit: http://thereefshop.com.au/index.php?main_p...roducts_id=1946

 

thanks, Dean

 

No one used these before?

Looks about like the 120w fixtures you see on ebay. Itll be fine for a 15g maybe even too much. I dont know if it is dimmable. Also the price is kinda steep I think

Go to google, type '120watt LED', and you'll see pages of the same unit with a different color scheme all over the place. Some as low as $175.

 

Way over-kill for a 15gal, but if you can get the dimmable versions you're all set. Not worth $250 though.

Being from Australia I'm not too keen on buying stuff over the net from America due to the electrical differences.

 

What kind of lighting would you recommend for a 15g/ 2ft reef tank?

Darren, I am also from Aus and looking at lights at the moment! Difficult to find non-US options, which as you say aren't feasible due to the electric differences.

 

I spoke to a guy at the LFS recently about lights, I don't believe that Kessil has a distributor in Australia unfortunately.

 

An option could be 2-3 BoostLED PAR30 lamps - I have one above each of my picos. Even then it is tricky to find suitable fixtures! I ended up hacksawing some lamps to make them work.

 

By the way - check out the Aussie Reefer Thread in my signature =0)
