I had a discussion with a guy from Aquatics Unlimited, and Marineland has two different LED sets out. THey have these standard ones, then double power, but then there is a new LED fixture coming out around Christmas is when they are supposed to be getting into stores, Aquatics seems to have some already. I was looking at a 20" that is set up to grow ANY TYPE of coral according to the Marineland rep, but the price tag was $200.

impossible to know what they would grow without knowing the number and power and brand of leds used. also a par test of them would be helpful. my impression is that that is a low price for a decently powered system, whether that means that they are a good deal or that they are not up to the task of lighting a reef is still up in the air, but i would be very suspicious. a general rule of thumb for reef lighting with good leds is one led per 10 to 20 square inches of surface area and when you diy them the costs run about 8 to 10 bucks per led. assuming that the 20 inch fixture is to cover 240 sq in. that would be between 12 and 24 leds. with a cost spread of about 100 to 250 bucks. so i guess it is possible that they are ok but i would want specs on the leds both number and type.

just looked up a good review of these on the reefbuilder website. they look like they could light a 18 inch or shallower reef sufficiently well but the color is not quite blue enough for me. and i dont like windex blue tanks. looks like a decent entry level led system.
