    Its a much better light IMO, but upkeep costs much more. Electric and bulb replacement costs need to be factored in.

    the marineland reef ready led light is a piece of junk, likely you wont be able to keep much under it. The other light is a decent light but as stated before your upkeep costs will be much more replacing bulbs.

    That's awesome!! You'll grow anything with that light. The cost is worth the growth IMO. LED lights can't touch that fixture. Growth is well proven with halide. I'll buy it from you if you don't want it.
