    im thinking about going with the reef breeder photn 48 over my 90 gal..it will be 100% sps tank and was wondering if any of you have experience with the reefbreeder photon lights? how well are your sps growing? , dying?, not growing?? what optics your using?? and if the color spectrum is good out of the box without arranging the led's?.... any input would be great ..thanks

    I've seen them in action and if I ever decide to do another tank and switch to led (I'm a halide guy), I'm going with the photon. Alot of bang for the buck and the spectrum is great. The tank grows like crazy but as with any tank, the light is only half the equation to running a successful reef. Reefbreeders will answer any specific questions about the light for you. You'll find them on the sponser area of 3reef.

    I saw one in action .. SPS looked top notch , full of color. The owner did mention certain corals he has to have near the top of the tank to get the color he wants.

    I'm using chinese full spectrum LED's, 2 channel dimmer each, and my stuff grows well.

    I'd say go for it

    Go for it. Adam at battle corals has one over one of his sps tanks. All his sps have great colors!
