    if you buy the upgrade, includes meanwell drives and allows them to be used with a controller. 299.99 0-10v dimming and you can get 120, 90, or 60 deg optics.

    What he said, I would reccomend 90 deg optics. Using the alc, a dawn/dusk effect can be programmed.

    The upgrade is $99 per fixture, as the meanwell drivers alone will run $70 per fixture

    also take into acount with the reefbreeders fixture, its under warranty for 2 years so if anything goes wrong wrong you are covered vs diy you have to buy the parts your self and fix it. On top of that reefbreeders is in a casing, so it looks nice and will keep your components better protected than a diy that is exposed as most i have seen including the one i built.
