    So I have a 30 gallon mixed reef right now; and im using high output T5 bulbs. The aquarium lighting I have is sufficient for my corals; But i am looking to start using LED.

    The dimensions of the tank are about 20L x 20W x 20H (inches... duh)

    I am currently growing a mix of corals from LPS to easier SPS. I am wondering which LED system I can purchase which isn't too expensive which will provide sufficient lighting for all coral growth and also provide amazing colours.

    Please help!
    Thanks

    For a tank with those dimensions I think any of the 120watt chinese made fixtures would give you sufficient light.The reefbreeders fixtures offer a good mix of colors and are backed by a good warranty.I would defenitely choose a light that is controllable or at least dimmable.

    How do those compare to the Ai Sol Blues? Is there anything showing par ratings on them?
